#OctPoWriMo9 – Fiery Forest

“I see fire
Burning the trees
And I see fire
Hollowing souls
I see fire…”

Ed Sheeran

Crackling flames setting homes ablaze
Amazon wilderness’ atmospheric haze
Collapsing lungs of Mother Gaia
Praying for healing to Her own messiah
Struggling to breathe in the only bloom,
Constricted by a carbon monoxide plume
Destructive deforestation threatening demise
Suffocating life sparking international cries
Billows of smoke blending in with the clouds
Contaminating the precious air it enshrouds
