Three Bushfires by Rob McKinnon


The Bushfire - I


Firestorm steals daylight

apocalyptic red sky

beach sanctuary





The Bushfire - II


Demon embers search

ahead of fearful terror

for new disaster





The Bushfire - III


Smoke choked horror air

grim angry wrath advances

consumes all ahead
