Behind the curtain

After Daniel 10:1-14

For a moment, a glimpse

behind the curtain,

of conflict, of war 

to the death. a war

in heaven barely

known on earth, yet

everything hinged

upon the outcome,

everything every day,

with battles and

explosions, attacks

and counterattacks,

a fight to the death,

no compromise,

no peace treaty, 

no armistice, but

a war, total war,

the war behind

the curtain.

Such a somber poem; the images are riveting, Glynn.
