Burn Scars

see the burnt mountain
dead tree trunks
on the wild slope

some people love
those tree lives
now burnt crispy

now we look in horror
we see near disaster
in our own lives

something like dead trees
burnt to black crisps

hard black lines
against sudden bare rock

remember with joy
mountains never burnt 

dark green hillsides
distant blue mountains

places to see from
places to fall from

about a mountain
even after a fire
something unforgettable
