The Eucalypt Trees

The Eucalypt Trees

Today the wind rises
and whispers in the trees
of bushfire.

Trees move in the wind
bending as if davening
in prayer.

For the memory
of fire is a blessing
and regeneration.

    The poem led me to wonder what the koala bears do when there is a threat of fire. My imagination gave me an image of them coming in the house and drinking tea with the kids. I know, it’s silly.
