Over 180 fires have broken out this past week across Texas, killing four and destroying more than 1,000 homes. Right now, we are safe, but it only takes a spark ... PRAY FOR RAIN. :(

Image 2011, Karla Dorman

If I could blame it all on the weather,
these drought fueled fires smoking
our lungs, coloring our sun bloody,
closing their fingers around the
necks, chasing once dense green
foliage to other states, exhausting
firefighters to the point of paralysis,
I would.  If only it were that simple ---

Texas is burning.

Man the stupid part of the equation:
carelessly tossing their butts out
of the window, setting a match to
state wide bans, laying waste to
acres of nerves watching, waiting,
preparing to flee at a moment's
notice, exposing the rest of us to
their foolishness and apathy ---

Lord, have mercy.

xxx Love and prayers are with you, Karla. I feel this as even, in a small way, I can relate as the coastal heaths I inhabit are equally as vulnerable to the mindless acts of arson through negligent ignorance. Really taut and tense writing here. xx

My heart goes out to all those in Texas affected if not directly then also indirectly by the fires burning there. My prayers I add to those of all who reside in that wonderful state that I had the privalege of visiting not to long ago.
