Gives a normal person nightmares what's happening with those fires - all the poor animals getting caught in those blazes. Sigh! So, maybe we'll just move to another planet when we're through destroying this one. Or more likely, Mother Earth is going to develop a fever and get rid of the germs that are destroying her eco systems.
Great cinquain, Steve. An important subject.

The artwork you choose doesn't show the whole picture which I understand. People should be aware o these firer and the hardship it causes.
I was watching TV last night and learn man sets small firer on purpose as a stopping line, but when the wind blows in a different direction all hell breaks loose.

Powerful use of the short form with a great build to the final line. The situation is tragic and your reference to the trees as, "green old men" is really effective. Artwork is evocative without telling the entire story. Well done, Steve. - Wendy

Hello Steve,
The imagery in your cinquain is both powerful and devastating.
I can't believe what is happening to our planet.... what mankind is allowing and causing to happen to our planet. I fear that it will soon be game over.
Well written and presented.
Good luck in the contest.
Best wishes, Debra :)

Steve, to say your cinquain is powerful is to understate -- but the subject matter is so shocking that power is the only way to express the Amazon's raging fires, the devastation and the potential harm we all face because of them...

Best of luck in the contest!

I enjoyed reading your contest entry but am not pleased with the subject matter. I am concerned about the status of the Rain Forest. It is so important to the well-being of our ecosystem. Good luck with the contest.

Well done cinquain form with a great message, Steve. I wonder if that's why I'm getting headaches - not enough oxygen? Seems like the burning method of farming was done irresponsibly and having worldwide consequences.

This is a tragic happening...it makes one cringe to think of how carelessness can cause such massive damage. You have written an excellent cinquain poem and I wish you the best in the contest.

I'm told that horrible fires are also happening in Alaska - last year we had tremendous fires - one that took an entire town in California. We're praying that none happen this year - we live sort of in a wooded area. I like the term "green old men" - even the good trees burn.
