Fortresses

Cool mists of benevolence
to dampen the fires of
anger and torrents to
drench the rage of
mayhem and madness
opposing nations wage.
Pastures for shepherds to
tend their gentle flocks
and flowers to soldiers for
battles not fought. Fortresses
built from clouds and weapons
of straw to blow away
with the slightest gust of
fear and warm rays of
faith to dry a world of tears
