Red Hot fire coursing through my veins
Hearts beat as one, open and weak at the knees
Kids out playing while fire trucks go by
The stop sign ignored
The siren in a distance
Food on the stove simering
Things are heating up
Red wine, licorice vines, hosing us down
Lovers, strangers, kids lost in the night
Electricity drawing us closer in embrace
While others run and flee
A shot on the outside, a pop on the inside
This moment, so primal and guteral upon entry
Kids screaming in the street
The fire getting closer
The beans smouldering on the stove
Moans, grons, sirens getting louder
The smell permeates the room,
A gust of wind
Ah sweet Jesus
I flush the toilet and look out the window
A fire of the heart and Sky
Memories of once before as flames turn all to ashes
Picture books, diaries, treasures, going up in flames
Burning a whole in my heart, in their heart and yours
We hold on and embrace this moment
Where love creates closeness and staves off sorrow
And yet may never be again
Starting over, in the rubble
And our amazing fire fighters putting out the flames.
Fire in the distance,
Vivid colors lighting up the sky, igniting sparks,
Burning a whole in my heart, your heart, all hearts.
The beauty unspeakable yet sad as the fire hangs in the air and warms us
through the night.
Grateful and thankful as we return and embrace
Fire of The Heart and Sky
kids tucked in
The night quiet
OMG what a night.
The Waddell Creek Fire happened Sunday night and these pictures were captured by our family friend Teddy Miller. It was burning directly over hwy 1 in California. Luckily no commumities were threatened.
Teddy captures wild life pictures in a moments notice and stops at nothing to get them. His work is captivating, colorful and enriches your heart when you see it. He lives in Davenport, Ca with his wife and new baby boy. You can find his work at http://www.teddymillerphotography.com
You might also remember hearing about the Lake County Fires in California which were devastating. That is where we were at the lake house last weekend where I shared pictures of our family weekend. We are blessed we were not affected by them but know many who were.
Stay Safe out there and Stay Strong!
