Dim, Muddy-Yellow Sun


A dim, muddy-yellow sun struggles to rise above and shine through the thick haze that blankets the morning landscape. Looks like fog, but when I walk out, I discover it's heavy with the smell of grassfire. Lots of grassfires this past week in the state. This one must be fresh, perhaps still going, and not very far away, I deem.

Unusual morning, then. Shirt-sleeve weather at the moment. Supposed to be pushing toward 80° today.

Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
