Sadness in my heart..Bushfire Crisis

There was a sadness in my heart today
as I ventured out to stricken areas
effected by the fires.

My eyes took in the pain and loss.
Shells of homes and properties.
Sickness overcome me,
and an overwhelming feeling of despair
to see continuous hills of black charred trees
and that stench, deathly smell of burning.
No carnage to be seen except by the roadsides.

My eyes searched for life. I looked up
and soaring majestically where
three eagles.

Beauty beyond words for a fleeting
moment my heart felt joy.

Life is a miracle.
