Fiery

The frenzied snapping of underbrush is heard amidst the roar

Of the raging wave of fire that makes its way across the land

Each leaf and twig devoured stoked the fiery beast’s search for more

A grueling race to grind the towering trees to ashy décor

Doe-eyed young sprint and tumble in a dizzying dance unplanned

The frenzied snapping of underbrush is heard amidst the roar

This wrathful being birthed of seasonal drought leaves us in horror

As no expanse or acreage of land can quench its thirsty demand

Each leaf and twig devoured stoked the fiery beast’s search for more

It is a blanket of red that bears a weight of death one cannot ignore

And from it rises a towering pillar of blackness grand and fearful

The frenzied snapping of underbrush is heard amidst the roar

The beautiful glades and peaceful fields now the tales of lore

As charred relics and petrified remains litter the scene at hand

Each leaf and twig devoured stoked the fiery beast’s search for more

The desolation is complete and a silence echoes the life that was found before

To reverse the hands of time I had no power of such command

The frenzied snapping of underbrush is heard amidst the roar

Each leaf and twig devoured stoked the fiery beast’s search for more
