Gentle glades and spring flowers
blue skies and still water
the sun gives everything a golden sheen
while living serene and simple dreams.
Nature's sweet melody- tugs the strings of the soul within
a song devoid of any conceived sin
musical notes of this imagined world blow across the wind
a note that no human voice can quite pin.
A vortex opens in the midst of the picturesque landscape
and you are sucked back into frightening reality.
Dark clouds of smog hover in the sky- blocking the sun
the golden sheen is gone- your dream is done.
Blood flows down the glade of torment
the echoes of screams and sounds of war are continuant.
No quiet, no beauty in this other place
a landscape structured by distaste.
Two worlds so similar- but differences do not cease
each have their own separate peace.
