Fires Blazing


by Atul Ranchod

Fires blazing!
Hungry ravenous flames,
No escaping.

Smoke and soot
Haze to displace.
Ruined heartbreak.

How fast it changes.
Nature’s wrath
Quickens the blood.

Wash away,
Green needed.
Droplets heeded.

It is in the midst
Of the relentless destruction,
To focus on the inner oasis.

The pruning and clearing
For new growth forming
Beyond our limited knowing.

Take solace
In the understanding
The rose has bloomed for millenia.

Hope then, is alive and well!
We will make it through
This heated spell.
