Along the River

Running across the dated train bridge,
 I was amused at the aggressive blackberry plants creeping across the bridge even though the bridge is still in use.

The smoke was lifting and the skies were clearing,
the air fresher, making it easier to breathe.

Orange Moon

The particles of smoke in the evening sky
create a beautiful orange moon,
floating above the dark mountain shadow.
We have had a week of smoke filled skies.

Smoky Skies


Because of all the fires raging in BC,
we have been enveloped in smoky skies
which have been veiling the hot sun,
 giving a sense of eeriness. 
Here the early morning sun attempts to brighten our day.
