Wild Fires in New Mexico

This morning

I thought the sky

Looked like rain

So thick it was

But now it’s light

The valley is full of smoke

Two fires burn

Just over the mountain

This summer is so dry and hot

New Mexico burnes

Just a little at a time

Fire crews from Montana

Were on the scene at once

The forests are a tender box

No one knows where

The smoke will rise again

It’s not an ordinary place

Once burned new growth is slow to return

In northern New Mexico

It’s high montain desert

The scars will last a life time
