the air moves
3:30 in the morning and the air is finally beginning to move. It is still hot air, but not as hot as earlier. And if I close my eyes I can imagine the sound of wind and soft distant traffic is the ocean and I am somewhere near the sea feeling a hot coastal breeze on my neck.
And I remember last year’s fire. And think, Hot winds. Hot winds are not good.
I am still thankful for movement in the air and any lessening of the heat. So I think, Thank you for the wind. Please keep the firemen safe.
And wonder if it is still too hot to sleep.
