Fire – Theme Friday


Smoky, early morning. The singe pervades and imparts its scent on all. An eerie quiet is known by the earth, the animals and human beings. They are waiting. For the next burst, the next explosion of orange and crimson to color the sky and consume the hills, the homes and those who dare to fight back.

Adrenaline screams and shreiks but voices turn inward and whisper fearful and frightening things.

The shimmer of ash floats on infrequent breezes and settles like malevolent snow on the world below. And we wait. And we pray. For it to end.

  1. Interesting coincidence. I wrote a big piece about fire just before coming here. Stay safe, chica.

    Hey 30,
    There goes that great minds thinking alike thing again. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We’re safe, I think. For us, I do believe the danger is over. Thanks, honey.

  2. Annie, My thoughts are with you. Hang in there…


    Hey Sweetie,
    Actually, I think the danger for us is over. The have the fire 45% contained at this point and due to controlled burns and our most excellent firefighters (as well as the wonderful firefighters from across the country who have come to lend a hand) I believe we are all safe at this point. The evacuations are over and people are back in their homes. Though sadly, there were about 60 homes lost and I pray for them and hope they are able to rebuild again.
