The World Burns…

Noxious intent brews

rampant callous endeavors

toxic news flare up

flames of greed engulf mankind

the world burns, inhales vile ash.

A tanka for Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 164



Another in the series of A to Z poems, where the words move alphabetically.  You can read the earlier one here. I have used “ex” for the letter x.  Could not think of an appropriate word beginning with it. If any of you can think of one, please share 🙂


Across boundaries conflicts descend

ember flames glow,

horrid incidents, jolts kids

lurid massacres numb peace,

quells rational solution

tension usurps violence,

war exhausts

yowl zillions!
