In a smoke blanket
mistaken for overcast, he
wraps us –
the wind, undoing –

and the old gum tree writhes
against him, but
we sit inside
with our homes on fire.
:(

(My little island state is burning.)

There's a beautiful enigma to this - so much lovely symbolism and description.

Nature can be helpless - people do nothing. It's sad.

I love the "and the old gum tree writhes against him" line...amazing. You're actually experiencing fires right now, then (or so I gather from the below comments)?

:huggle: Mine is burning too..

This poem perfectly represents a bush fire and you also gain a sense of hopelessness when we read the last two lines. I enjoyed reading this :aww:
