It is wildfire season again in California, and causing much devastation along the west coast and nearby states. This video poem is a tribute to the first responders of such fires, the Hotshots. May you continue to protect our homes and lives. Please enjoy my tribute to these valiant firefighters, entitled “Heroes of the Burning Fields.” For more on the Hotshots, please read my post at LetterPile.com.
Thank you Visual Verse for first publishing this poem on your fine online magazine. The Jump was written alongside a cliff in the Mesa section of Santa Barbara. While the video and reading took place near surfers point in Ventura, CA.
Much appreciated to the fine site KnowThyself, Heal Thyself for publishing this poem.
This poem was originally published in International Human Rights Arts Festival. Speaking up for human rights, being treating as an equal, free of abuse and discrimination, is more vital than it ever was.
