Fire is a tyrant

Fury – replacing peace

Hopelessness – its wake.


Reminder to pray for the people and lands being affected by the uncontrolled fires in Colorado – and elsewhere.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before.

    nice haiku Oneta … yes they need our prayers as they rebuild. That was shocking.

    I spent some time recently in the Texas hill country, where drought continues to increase in severity. We’re all looking at the rains building in the Gulf — not with fear this time, but with gratitude for the help it can bring.

      I guess it balances out of a space of years, but it can be rough for a season. Good to see you, Linda. You been traveling? 😀

        I went to Kansas City over Memorial Day to visit my aunt, whose 93rd b’day is coming up. We had a family barbeque on Memorial Day itself, and then my only girl-cousin and I drove back to Texas, and she spent some time here. She flew back home yesterday, and I’m delighted to be able to get back into my routine, despite the good time we had.

    Nice Haiku. Prayers for the affected ones.

    As beautiful as it can be, fire is indeed much more destructive. Great post, and prayers for Colorado!
