VERMONT, FIRE SEASON: a triptych

VERMONT, FIRE SEASON:  a triptych

~after Kari Hansen

It started low,

in the swamps. The red

flames smouldered, skipped,

 

spread to the hillsides,

the streets and gardens

of every village. Orange.

 

Near the end, it died

to an amber that flickered on 

over the white and gray.
