Poetry: Bastrop Burning

Three poems by Lou Taylor
in response to the art work of Allison Brown-Cestero

Bastrop Burning: Epicenter

Deep char
In the center of our lives
White hot

Hear flames crack
Smell acrid smoke
Emanating from our core

Changed forever

Bastrop Burning: Rift

Slashing deep and wide
Destruction from all side
Divides our world

Surrounding inferno
Leaves a canyon of death

Breath the fumes
Sense the heat
Wait for cool relief

Bastrop Burning: Lost Pines

Gone in a flash
Eons of patient growth
Destroyed before our eyes
