haiku retrospective ccx

summer wind
the heavy thwock-thwock
of the fire copter

Heard the first tanker helicopter of the year this morning. These large dark copters carry water from local reservoirs to fight wildfires. Every fifteen minutes or so, I hear the tanker fly overhead. Fire season is here.

charred sign
only YOU can prevent
forest fires

ashes to ashes
the black slope thick
with baby trees
