Choked By Smoke

 

 

choked by smoke  

wings heavily weighed down  

butterflies struggle  


* * * * *

 

on the front porch  

windows get closed, too  

hot smoky days  


* * * * *

 

constricted indoors  

finding comfort in reading  

plant watering waits  


* * * * * 

 

 

new summer mem'ries  

delayed for many days  

sunflower quest lost 


* * * * *  



summer's weather  

unhealthy smoky air  

alone, indoors  



  

in every home  

windows have been shut  

poor air quality  


* * * * * 

 

 close the curtains  

fearful of smoky air  

a hazy sunrise  

 


Poems above are written referencing the smoke-filled air caused by fires in Canada blowing south and California and Dakota fires blowing east.  It was dangerously hazy, thick and we were cautioned to avoid being outside breathing in this hazardous air.
