(Beginnings) Fire-storm




Fire-storm

Summer fire storms
Land lies scorched and blackened.
Rains revitalize.

Fascinating Maureen! Great use of color.. and certainly depicts your haiku.

Terrific depiction of raging fire. The burning embers look as if they would burn me if I touched them. Sadly, fires all to often are followed by torrential rains (speaking from experience, living in So. California).

This is so descriptive! Great use of color - what are your techniques here? I like the look of your brown background, but am not sure what it is. Though the haiku starts in a negative tone, and the artwork shows devastation, your 3rd line is optimistic and helps the reader/viewer to see beyond the immediate experience. Nice work.
