I've seen this in places I've lived(when a fire got away from a neighbor and burned farmland in Iowa, and also, the forests coming back after a wildfires in Arizona). What grew the next year was vibrant, just like your poem. Your words are amazing. I love the format, images, and meter. What a powerful message!

Your title is perfect for this poem of hope and inspiration. Rhyme and meter get an A+ from me. Great job.

This had so much hope in it, especially for those who have felt burned and too scarred to ever have new life again - which is most of us at one time or the other. I loved it!

Congratulations, Vincent, on your win. This poem is beautiful and I love the parallel between new bush life and life after death. I reconised it as a poem about Australian bush fires and, being a fellow Aussie, I know the devastation wreaked by these fires. What you have written, so skilfully, rings very true. A well deserved first place!
I loved this absolutely beautiful poem. Congratulations on a very well deserving first place.
