Flame of the forest



FLAME OF THE FOREST

Blazing sun
Oppressive heat
Scorching everything in it's wake
Creation groans
With dry boughs bent low
Yearning, longing for rain

Then suddenly comes 
Splashes of color
Flames of fire
Like torches on a tree
Signaling to the clouds
Come break out
Send showers upon me

Flame of the forest
Vibrant in hue
Like a silver lining
In dark grey clouds
Lighting up the dreary sky.
