Burnt Ruins of Past

Author:

It's been days since the fire that wrecked havoc to our homes. Many succumb from loss of shelters even pets and an elderly neighbor.

Arise from the night an ember sparked,

Twilight ablazed to a painted gray.

People run while sad hounds barked,

Shelters burnt that fateful day.


Amidst pandemic crisis,

Problems come in laps.

Slowly, fear and anguish

But truth suddenly slaps.


Earthly treasures so fleeting,

Definitely never last.

As walls starts caving

And burning into dust.


Reminisced in silence,

Looked through the ruins afar.

Despite the sudden incidence

It surely leaves a scar.
