The pawns
ivory clad wait their fate with soldier's discipline
Never breaking rank as they advance accross
the black and white checkered field
The rooks and bishops
move on their steady lines
forcefully and with difinity
The black crusading knights jump over the
ebony pawns staying behind as a guard
The queen takes charge her black hair pushed back
and crown askew atop her regal brow
The bishops attack
Black forcing white to flee as pawns are slain
A black knight is overcome and his mount screams
they go down the spark fading from the stony face
the bloody battle rages
the dust settles
Stark light and shadows
The darkness breaks like stormclouds
And their king's cornet rolls accross the board
and arrives with a small clatter at the victor's feet.

thumbs up!
Again another nice piece, completely contrasting from 'sense of a soul', which I love. A good poet has this type of versatility.
This poem builds a great visual picture, whilst giving the reader ounces depth and emotion
