Midway Blues

Midway Blues
The forest burned
Above the steam
Hot red and orange
What once was green

Some get the blues
They can’t condone
The forest stripped
To barest bone

I love the world
In all its hues
It’s Nature’s way
Her fire renews

Midway Geyser Basin
Yellowstone National Park
Wyoming, United States of America

My second response to Jennifer Nichole Wells’ One Word Photo Challenge, which this week is Wildfire.

It’s also a second response to the Weekly WordPress Photo Challenge, which this week is Monochromatic.

My first response to both these challenges was Bringing Fire.
