No Rain

Earth and fire and (no) rain (yet)…the fires show up (for me) as a gray haze lingering over the mountain vistas outside my windows. Our smoke here mostly comes from three smaller lightening-caused fires burning in steeper, high mountain areas in the next sierra valley south of here. The bigger fires in the news are way north and south of us. Paradise (a northern sierra foothill town) has been demolished (perhaps by sparks from the electrical power company’s dysfunctional transformer in the wind). An entire town wiped out (for now).

We all are on the verge of paradises lost and waiting to be regained.
We wear the earth, while it lasts.
