Well said, Jim!! I loved your free verse and noticed the excellent placement of internal rhymes. Interesting placement keeps us interested and engaged. Well done, my friend.

Hello JLR, well written comments on the stupidity of tossed matches. You chose a good subject considering the fierce fires raging in America - quite horrifying. How many of these fires are the result of a tossed match? Your poem is well worded and a good read - well done. Regards Dorothy x

It is so heart-breaking, the loss of lives, homes and the horror of the smoke that affected so many states across the country. These fires have been just awful this year. Thanks for sharing about how such a small act of negligence can cause such horrors.

This is an interesting viewpoint of the fires on the west coast. It does all start with a small match. Unfortunately, your solution is not very realistic. It would be nice if we could.

A very well-written poem about matches that can start a fire which can either be our friend when we want to cook or getting warm in the cold of it can be our enemy when someone recklessly toss a burning match into dry fields.

Well this is a very true and touching poem. In some countries fires are completely forbidden in summer, as it should be. It's a shame this happened and I totally agree that matches should be locked up to avoid this happening again.

"Errant Matches", is an extremely well-written, and delightfully descriptive piece. With craft and skill, this talented poet has told it as it is. You KEEP WRITING and I'll KEEP READING. I look forward to seeing your next post.

I am with you on this. It's not done with the intention of causing harm, but such negligence cannot go unpunished. How this can be accomplished is anyone's guess. Thanks for sharing.

Well done! I don't think I have seen you stray into free verse before, but you have done a fine job on this. And yes, the careless stupidity of people when any fool can see the hazardous conditions, is to blame for many tragedies.

Dangerous fires are rare here, but across the Tasman in Australia, they are a fact of life, and as in the US becoming more common and more intense. It is very scary what is happening on the US west coast right now.

Steve
