There are four HUGE fires burning in Colorado right now.
Clinging thick; swathing the world in a horrid shroud of death and destruction
(this is the sun about 4:00 p.m.)
wearily blurring the eyes and burning the lungs
The smoke speaks volumes of what the firefighters are experiencing
And all living creatures caught in the path of the fires
And the poor trees, bushes, and other plants succumbing to the passion of the flames.
Then about 4 o’clock yesterday our local newspaper reported The Mille Creek Fire near Gunnison, Colorado
Our world is sagging with the fires and the other-the-top heat (103*f —39.44c) plus the dry lightning.
