Wilderness, engulfed beneath a fearsome sky 

death tolls screaming Nature’s fury - into our reality

future’s painted bleak, with each tightening twist of 2020’s misery.


Orange horizons spotlighting our Moon scarlet

untimely Aurora, choking midnight scenes hauntingly still

draped in the horror hue of blazing wildlife.


Stay home, our mantra for surviving COVID-19

stay safe and don’t venture out - they stressed

what now for those displaced?


Will this plagued year: ever relent...
