      Poetry Submission: Wildfire (Chanukah 5771/2010)

      Wildfire (Chanukah 5771/2010)
      Conflagration in the Carmel!
      Ancient forests a living hell!
      Charred trees smoking the sky black and gray
      Hear their sound!
      Ironies abound!
      The northern inferno prompts careful reflection:
      Elijah once called down prophetic fire
      Upon the soaked altar atop the mount
      Outdoing Baal’s pagan priests between lofty evergreens
      Chanukah candles annually commemorate
      Triumph over Hellenism
      This year the Hebrew was grateful the Greek helped douse the flames
