Sonnet #2 -Unlikely Leaves-

Short walk to a gathered room
The branches battered above
Spidery sharp shadows loom
Something about leaves, something about love

And war or peace depending
On the slant of the sun
Patterns on my face spiraling
The spacial order undone

To look up in this strange relief
With all this casual dying
Steady as the soldiers grief
Bodies and borders splintered and falling

All over the world they go by ease or strife
Victorious victims of life
