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

Smoke rising

Sheer delight

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

Kids screaming

Parents crying

Dogs barking

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

Dogs sleeping

The night quiet

Sirens silenced

Love waits

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!

❤️

Cindy

Wow, loved how beautifully you have portrayed the fire and the power it commands. This imagery was so powerful that I could the heat right through my phone. But are you safe? Is this place somewhere close to you? Take care Cindy. Loved the poem. 😍😍

I’m glad you are OK, Cindy! Reading your poem is like being there, smelling the smoke, the glow of the flames, the screams of children. I hope you don’t have any more fires!

Many years ago in Virginia, there was a forest fire on the mountain above my home, and the smell of smoke was rolling down into our yard. I grabbed the dozen or so photo albums with family photos and put them in my car. The fire was extinguished, but I learned from the experience which possessions were irreplaceable.

Take care, Cheryl

I’m with you. I experienced the Ridge Fire in Colorado when my husband was backpacking for a week and went to work every day with my albums and important papers in the car and a sign in my window that said “Cat Inside” for the firefighters. Every night there was smoke and an orange glow off my back deck. A good friend of mine is a retired smoke jumper; now he fights from the ground and ironically lost his home in the Camp Fire. We keep on keeping on. Love . . .

My heart goes out to those who experienced this devastation… my sincerest love and prayers❤🙏

“Memories of once before as flames turn all to ashes”… this line from your poem really drew my attention. I cherish memories so much, especially where a memory was made. So knowing memories are being lost through burnt houses, etc really hurts💔

Loved the creativity of your poem though. 💚🔥

Sorry about the fire, glad everyone is safe. I can’t imagine losing so much in a fire, you’ve done well making this poem not so damaging as the fire! And these pictures your friend took are amazing and powerful, captured the fire in all its burning glory.

Oh wow. Coincidences do occur then, I guess. Or maybe it was your sub consciousness trying to emerge? Whatever it was, stay safe, Cindy ❤️❤️❤️

This sounds terrifying! It’s a wonderful poem but so frightening to think it’s a real life situation. I hope you and your family are all safe and well.

I get a chuckle out of each article on the CA fires. It always reminds me of the insanity of those residents who continue to vote Democrat but expect a different result in their state’s fire control methods and cleaning up of the forests……………….what idiots.

I can feel the chaos in your words my friend. We were praying about the fires but I couldn’t imagine what it must have been like and now I know. How frightening and devastating fire can be. Felt so badly for all the horrible loss. Watching a fire close enough that you can smell it and see it was definitely felt in your work. Beautifully descriptive but hard to read. Glad you all made it. Love and hugs to you Cindy, my friend. Joni

I don’t know how you handle it. I have a terrible fear of fire but I think it comes from my mom cooking and drinking and setting the kitchen on fire several times. The smoke can’t be good for you either. Please be careful. I worry for people that won’t evacuate when the fire gets so close. Better to survive. Love you Cindy. 💕❤️💖
