Cali Fire Storm  

Running, running, running race,
fire in flicking, licking pace.
Roar of winds are whirling loud,
crack and boom of heated shroud.
Giant trees engulfed in flame,
grass and houses all the same,
human life a pawn in the game.
Rushing storm in smoky cloud,
choking, burning eyes and skin.
Treasures lost, devoured within
moments. Time and life a spin.
Running, running, running race
Fire in flicking, licking pace.

I could almost hear the roar of the inferno, Tink. Nicely done.

Thanks Tony and Dee.  The form was appropriate for the subject.   The aftermath a barren scarred void but at the time 70 mile an hour fire storm didn't leave any time to do anything but run.
