Fire…a poem

every time
I see a beautiful picture
like this one
I hear women
screaming
as they are burned
for being
witches
by white men
who
simply wanted
their possessions

if you’re very quiet
and pay attention
maybe you can hear
them too

they’re still
screaming

Wild Fire…

Wildfire, Fire, Flames, Hot, Burning

fire
wild
and out of control
rushes across the land
devouring everything in its path
it doesn’t judge
or think
it just moves
doing what it’s meant to do
burning brightly
searing heat
flames
engulfing whatever they
touch
all the while
preparing the ground
for new beginnings
like an earthly Phoenix
being reborn

The fires in Australia are devastating and Koala bears might now be on the endangered species list. What’s happening is horrifying.

Fire…

fire doesn’t have intent
it has no agenda
fire
just is
it can only do
what it’s meant to do
and what it’s meant to do
is burn
