Melbourne Fires...

l have tried to imagine
How those poor people on the mountain feel.
l have never been caught is a fire situation before.
lve only had trouble with water.

but these poor people.
the fright, the fear.
thinking or knowing they were going to die.
the pain of the heat.

the fading in and out of life.
their lungs, the body functions.
the depression, the pain.
my heart cries for them.
others lives are and can be worse than mine.

l shall pray for them to have great strength.

I can think of no worse death than by fire. I have been on the edge of a forest fire for too long and come to know it as a living and breathing thing that eats all in its path.

People are just more fuel.
