Hell set free


The fire wasn’t to cease
The heat grew evenly layer by layer
Just the way the other side shimmered
Above the flames sparks ignited
And horses came in view.
Slowly after they neighed
Falling petals replaced them and snow –
As red as and fiery as a dragon’s breath descended.
The sky turned crimson and dark –
Summoning the legend of our nightmares.
Smiles were swapped with angst
Our inner demons were wakened
Grasses lost their green turning away to ashes
When nasty Hell made his way.

  2. A moving piece. The wildfires are bad here, too. I would never have thought to compare them to snow.
