Burning On

June 26, 2017, Prescott-

This double haiku refers to the Goodwin Fire, now burning southeast of Prescott.  From 8 PM to 8AM(Tuesday), I will be manning the small shelter set up by the Red Cross, in the village of Spring Valley.

I would get packed,

then, I’d buy two tires

and head on out.

Mother Nature requests pause.

The fire down the road,

won’t be put out.

    • There have been thirty homes evacuated, thus far. One mobile home, a hunting station, was destroyed. Others remain at risk, but the fire is 8 % contained, and progress will be made on further containment. The high winds are still a worry.


  1. It’s definitely fire season! We’ve had a couple of rough ones already, and I just heard of one south of Beaumont. It will be a long, hot summer!
