Cranston fire 🔥


Clouds of smoke gather
Off in the distance, watching
Fire consumption
~
Winds urging the flames
Reeking havoc in its path
Devastating all
~
Idyllwild, our place
To meet for a fall retreat
Writing oasis

Icebox


Once again
I find myself standing
Looking in to admire
Her inner beauty
Illuminating everything
That’s classically hidden
Behind a sturdy exterior
Made of steel

I begin to reflect
On polished effects
Side-by-side, sinking
Counter-depth
As temperatures rise
She remains cool
As a cucumber inside
Protecting my food

 

…and then there’s mine ❤️ Full of everyday condiments you gotta have.
