earth, wind, fire… moon
earth– forests ablaze
Oregon’s green flashes to red
wind– charred ash
Tree remnants float on air
Dry vegetation satiates wild hunger
moon– reverse reflection
Lit by Earth’s continental combustion, not sun.
Science note- moon lit by fire is not scientifically correct. Only the sun can claim that role. Thank you for the poetic license.
What a moon it was last night… its color in the photo is pretty close to accurate. Very smoky, with fine flakes of ash floating down. I wore a mask, and had to dust off my equipment when I went back inside. My thoughts go out to the firefighters and folks near the wildfire sites. Bless you all. I hope prayers for rain will be answered later in the week. Wildfire crews will be greatly assisted by the last element… Water.
