  1. You and I had a lot of the same images, black and red, forest shadow, screaming, that brooding menace. And that illustration!!
    Yours is the start of the idea, mine picks it up and morphs into Merril’s. We make a great team.

  2. I read the smoke from the fires in the west had reached New York. Those smoke filled skies are dreadful. When they happen here it feels like the end of the world. I hope rain comes to dampen the fires soon. Your poem and art really convey the feeling of dread those skies bring.

  3. I really feel this poem. Sigh. I think we know the who why how but are powerless to stop them. Except by withdrawing financial support from the corporations doing the most damage, and from politicians who live in denial of the climate crisis. And with our poems. This one of yours really hits my heart. We are speaking the same language at earthweal, for which I am grateful. What would I do without it?

    1. Thanks Sherry. Earthweal is a light in the darkness for sure. What I don’t understand is why people vote for these clowns, totally against their own interests and lives.
