Wednesday, 9:29 am

This morning the sun gets buried in the sky

The streets are dim and quiet

No sounds of cars moving

The air is still, frozen

The morning looks like late afternoon.

I go downstairs, open the front door

Outdoors is dark.

What happens?

I open the news in my mobile.

To see if there is an explanation

Emergency service office reports smoke and ash 

are drifting towards us.

Later I learned that I was not the only one astonished.

New fires are raging.

I don’t know if the birds are crying.
