Woke up this morning to an orange-brown haze

These fires have been burning for many long days

Will they be able to put out the blaze?

Heaven help the firefighter today.


"It looks like a war zone", I heard someone say.

Others call it "moonscape", all dead, dark, and gray.

The ash falls like snowflakes, even miles away.

Dear God, please help the firefighters today.


Town after town, the fire burns on.

The firefighters are out there, some for too long.

Dog-tired and weary, but still they move on.

Please don't forget the firefighters today.


May they find comfort and strength in Your care.

Their courage must take them where no one else dares.

Their lives on the line; please be aware--

The firefighter is out there, working today.

Margena, your words are like steps that lead me beside these brave firefighters and allow me to see what they see. Powerful images flashed by me from your pen...and I felt myself praying alongside others 'Heaven help the Firefighter today...'
Excellent poem! A valuable contribution- thankyou for sharing.

Great dedication to those brave men and women...great write in general. My wife and I used to live in Van Nuys, so I am only too familiar with the fires.

FLUSH! by Tom Kitt

Flush! takes you on a poetic journey that touches many areas of human experience. But, in spite of the diversity the poems have a common resonance or theme that is ancient and agel..
