All because one

All because one

A Poem by Mintwhiskers

Smoke covers the sky in a thick blanket

as reds burn in my mind

Fire bores into the forest

One destroys thousands.

A blazed trees, running animals

Spraying water calms the wild fire

It vanishes with a dissapearing act

Disaster lies a path to broken hearts and bodies

because of one match

Beautiful Piece Mintwhiskers! Excellent use of words, beautiful concept. You have reduced catastrophe by just one action! Yea, all it does take is one.
Great job!!!

This poem is excellently written and one of my favorite short pieces I have read recently. I like the fact that so much destruction terror etc was caused by a simple match. It really has a universal theme that can be applied to a lot of different things if one looks at the poem as symbolism. I liked the flow in this piece as well. With short pieces flow is harder to achieve becuase things tend to come out choppy but you really did a good job here. Excellent work, incredible poem.

You made it easy to visualize the destruction and you made the reader curious about what caused the destructin. At the end you put things into perspective by showing what a big impact a small object like a match can have. I like this poem, it is short and sweet.

Nice use of imagery and rhyme to create the burned and blackened atmosphere of a brush/wild Fire. This piece flows easily and is both and easy and informative piece for the readers. Great reflection on what one can reap for carelessness. Good Work!!

the poem was really good. I liked it. But the second to last line didn't seem to flow as well as the other lines. The last line i thought, for some reason, was really good.

I really like your simple yet highly descriptive words. They create a vivid picture as you read through this poem. The reader experiences the middle and the end of this event and is left to imagine the origin of its beginning... "where did that one match come from?" Well Done.
