#Haiku 16: Smoke & Veil

Forest fire

Summer fires destroy

The burnt trees sizzle and smoke

Ashes veil green life.

Author’s note (From National Geographic): On average, more than 100,000 wildfires, also called wildland fires or forest fires, clear 4 million to 5 million acres (1.6 million to 2 million hectares) of land in the U.S. every year. Of these 4 out of 5 are started by people.
