Nearly 19 inches below normal in rainfall; massive grass fires are scorching thousands of acres in the Southern Plains every day. The skies are hazy; the smell of smoke lingers in the air; fears grow with each day that passes with no measurable precipitation. PRAY FOR RAIN.

the burning season -
carelessness kindles the flames
that dance with the wind

(c) 2005, Karla Dorman.

Superb haiku Karla! I really love this one! I wish we could send you some of our rain. I've never seen it like this. For days it pours without let-up. They are beginning to have flooding from the rivers and streams etc, that hardly ever flooded before. Right now it is as dark as night and the rain is pounding the roof. I happen to like it;-) We get so much sun here, but it can be over-done and this is one of those years it seems. Everything feels damp and that is most unusual in California! I pray it comes your way soon!

We are struggling here in New Mexico also, but so far no raging fires, though if rain doesn't come soon the fires will. The warm weather is great, but the earth needs the rain. Very nice Ku, Karla.
Take care,

Don't turn your back on those wild fires, Karla! We "burn" every year here in California.
Stay safe,

I wish mother nature would scatter the rain, and also rain on the areas that needs water, not to create floods in some.

If only I could travel in your direction. I have been known to bring rain :-)

Here it warm.......yup in the middle of winter we are having rain. One night of snowfall........New Years Eve. Perhaps mother nature is demanding we give up the drinking?

Mother Nature is showing us lately that she will do as she pleases and there isn't a damn thing puny man can do to stop her if she really decides to kick ass. However, after saying that, I believe in prayer, so I have already said one for rain. Look for it.

An appropriate quote from my novel THE BUCKSKIN SKIRT OAR TRAVELER on this wildfire subject: "There is a huge lesson to learn in these fires. It is: We learn that fire is the strongest natural force tagged with awareness that nature is unpredictable as is the arson of humans."{Sage Sweetwater}

Karla, this is timely and to the point.
I'm doing my rain dance, and peddling as fast as I know how.
How could we arrange for a mild hurricane to pass through your part of God's country? Any ideas? - Bill

Nicely done, Karla. I remember such things from my days in California. Very frightening, indeed.
