I will read ashes for you, if you ask me.
I will look on the fire and tell you from the gray lashes
And out of the red and black tongues and stripes,
I will tell how fire comes
And how fire runs far as the sea.
By Carl Sandburg
Fire all throughout the Southwest--it is burning, eating and consuming every single thing in its way.

Dry dry air, heavy and suffocating. Sun scorching burnt earth, 100 degrees or more. Tinder dry vegetation, ready to burn.
Oh, God! Please protect the firefighters!
Oh, God! Bless families whose homes are burned to the ground!
Every summer, I post about wildfires. Last year, we could see the flames from our house. One year at a school where I taught, ashes covered playground and swings.
