smoke from Mother Nature’s fire
The sky was darkened by smoke
from Mother Nature’s
renewed preoccupation
with fire
The eerie hue took on
a foreboding tone
of a pending cleansing
At her hands no corners
would be left unattended
and there would be no carpets
to hide under
As if a warning,
the landscape suddenly
looked extraterrestrial
surreal momentarily absent of life
making "for sale” signs look like parodies
as the sun’s countenance changed
to sinister as if possessed by a red phantom
grimly smiling
The ash swirled in the air
as a reminder that all
comes and goes
truly owned
