My Beloved Town
California...Schorched Earth by Artasylum
Tanka Poetry Contest contest entry

Today I awake
Raging fires schorching earth 
Stark waking nightmare 
Red skies nightly terrify
Black soot fills my heavy heart


Author Notes
This is so tragic... So sad... Heartbreaking and I'm keeping it light!
