July 2011 – Smoke & Fire

Distant breeze blows hot
summer’s flare threatens as I
languidly smolder

around the campfire
ghost stories prompt nervous laughs
as marshmallows toast

blue skies orange sun
blowing breezes, flames flourish
Slave Lake: town burned down
from the “Red White & Blue Haiku” contest

Where there is SMOKE
there is FIRE. That in itself makes me
RED, White, and Blue
~Ron K.
from the “Red White & Blue Haiku” contest

grass so dry, no rain
for safety camp fires taboo
forest gone, in flames
