  • Conflagrations (Reworked)


    Wildfires
    Amok in California
    Walls of smoke and flame

    Desire
    For you welled up
    Also a great conflagration

    Loss
    Of personal histories
    Domiciles turned to rubble

    Landmarks
    Of memory in ruins
    Untold worth beyond dollars

    I watch
    The devastation
    On television and wonder

    While you
    Brazen fugitive
    From my affections wander

    Like a fire
    Foraging for other
    Men to devour and move on

    A very creative use of current tragedies to illustrate personal consternation. I haven't read the original (just returned and starting at the top of my queue), but this is one to make me think.

      Great metaphor.

      While you
      Brazen fugitive
      From my affections wander

      Like a fire
      Foraging for other
      Men to devour and move on


      Thine stanzas, in particular, are top drawer!
