Best Poem of Ranjan Abayasekara

Have You Seen A Bushfire?

Have you seen a Bushfire?
First it seems far away - nothing to do with you
Only visible on a hill top across the valley..
The wind can change, and make it almost scamper in your direction!
Have you seen the flames jump -
Across roads, skimming treetops, across a river?
Have you run in a panic - for water hose and buckets?
Or grabbed a ladder to check gutters for debris?
Has your heart pounded as you scrambled looking in a drawer
For that one precious item you wanted to save?
Have you heard your children scream as they realise that flames are now only minutes...
