Wow! I love the musicality, timeliness, and the way "dominates" and "dominion" look alike but feel opposite.
Beautiful tanka with the expression of emotion and grief (ushin tei).
the wrath of fire
transferring the forest
to shapeless smoke

Yes – dominate and dominion together are brilliant. "Lost dominion of birds" is unforgettable. Grief for our planet. A wonderful poem, Mr. Read.
Nature reminding humans who really has the power and control, and humans continuing the slaughter directly and indirectly of its fellow animal species.
A gently powerful tanka.
