Black Saturday Images and Words Victorian Bushfires 2009
Tonight I sat by candlelight
listening to the rain.
Thinking of  those families,
that the fires took in vain.
Feeling for the things they've lost
and all their burnt out dreams.
Feeling for their lost loved ones
its so unfair it seems.
For we can send them money
and show them that we care,
but we cant feel the pain they feel,
its all so hard to bare.
I wish I were a rain cloud
as black as the ace of spades.
I'd drift atop them families
and rain on them all day.
But I am just a poet,
and for them I do cry.
If I were just a rain cloud
I'd blacken all them fires.

Black Saturday

Published on

I was sent 2 things this morning via email. Anthony's poem written from the heart about the devastating Victorian bushfires ... and a series of images.
At first, the images didn't fit the words and then, when I found images of people that did fit the words, it all seemed too close to home and too intrusive. So, random images with a beautiful poem.
