Haiku Fridays

acrid stench of smoke
rides on Friday morning breeze
fire threat looms again

I know the Camp Fire is a long way away from my home but it smells like it is right outside.  The entire town of Paradise is wiped out and the fire is travelling west in my direction.   I am not in imminent danger but fire is California's biggest threat and I live in a forest, always conscious that it just takes a spark. Our volunteer fire department has dispatched a truck to help fight the fire.  In little over a year we have experienced way too much devastation from fire in this state and right now we are experiencing 2 more huge, fast moving fires one in the south and one here in the north.  Last night they reported that the Camp Fire was moving the distance of 3 football fields a minute.

Awesome Tony.   I'm impressed   It is a  real haiku.  Here at Haiku Fridays we try not to take haiku too seriously.
