Sepia Stained Haze


Alpine majesty lost,
cloud of human idiocy
blanketing breathtaking
peaks, erasing
the splendor.

Disgust at human
race, no appreciation
for nature,
the honor bestowed
upon us.

Trying to push
through the haze,
attempts to enjoy
sepia stained

Lungs burning,
stinging from stench,
wood smoke smell
of thousands of
acres on fire.
All plans thwarted.

  1. How devastating forest fires are, especially when they so often can be avoided. Human carelessness is staggering at times. Beautifully written poem, with a fitting and descriptive title.
