Six days and seven nights now. No end in sight. Homes, forests, wildlife and livestock burnt to the ground, entire livelihoods destroyed. People are putting up a heroic fight to save what can still be saved. Lord please give them strength to endure; please soften the pain for all that has been lost. Let all of our souls bloom again.

No fortunate/unfortunate
we’re all in this together

When all collapses, what are we
Are we defined by weather

Catastrophes of such great scale
of wildfires all-consuming

It’s the beginning, not the end
God help our souls be blooming
