"Trees on Fire" acrylic on canvas by Chip Ghigna

Trees On Fire

The trees have held their tongues too long
tonight they sing a dying song
crackle hiss sizzle pop
ashes soaring to the top
yellow red orange cry
confessing secrets to the sky

rings of trees
rings of fire
rings of flame
soaring higher

past the mast
of sailing clouds
past the echoed
cry of crowds

past the last
wisp of pine
hear them whistle
hear them whine
