Backward stroke through heavy air, trees
cedar, oak, pine these seething embers exude
pungent winds that drift away with ease
tall timbers of omission breathe at last
and mourn the fallen permanence
unfortunate demise, inferno's blast.
Prompt inspiration: 3WW (backward, ease, omission)
You captured the flavor of the wildfires...so sad.
Wild fires can run very high risks in life and property. Rightly so!
It seems you have captured the demiss smells of wildfires destructive paths on the land.
The words led to thoughtless mistakes this time.
Seems even Minnesota is on fire today, too and it's cold there! but they can see the smoke from the fires there in space.
Great prose, sad subject though.
wildfire are so sad and yet the timber that is ashed and left behind helps grow new plants.It doesn't seem like it's worth it though to see stately trees go
Yes, this poem is so relevant right now..we are smelling the smoke of a wildfire 500 miles away. Smoke travels quite a distance.

You have taken me right to the edge of the wildfire. I can almost smell the smoke. So well done.
