This post was written in 3 minutes.
When I started working on this, I expected it would be a bit longer, but after writing four lines, I realized I had fully (and fairly succinctly) described the image I wanted to convey, and there wasn't much point in making it longer.

I wrote this while hiking Redington Mountain today - an overcast day in the fall.

And now my comments are longer than the poem itself.

The world's ablaze with crimson flames
That wildly lick at charcoal grays,
Consuming greens to fiery hues
Beneath a roiling, smoldering haze.
