The Sunset Sky Is A Strange And Eerie

Sunset sky

THE SUNSET SKY IS A STRANGE AND EERIE sight tonight, as a smoky haze covers the Border Country. The Northwoods needs rain. The pines need it. The blueberries and pipsissewa and harebells need it. The lichens and mosses need it. We all need rain. I have seen skies like this before, on canoe trips in the far North, with fires not far away. Sometimes we would even post sentries and share a watch through the night, in case things got dicey. Here on Fawn Island there is no immediate threat. But we need raindrops. Lots of them.
