Longing for Blue Skies (haiku)


Today in Sydney. I was going to visit my husband in hospital, but the smoke is choking me. We’ve never experienced anything like it before. He is fine in his airconditioned room. Please spare a thought and prayer for firefighters and farmers and everyone affected by these devastating bushfires. Pray for rain!


Longing for blue skies
When will this smoke nightmare end?
Winter, come back soon!

    I am praying for you. I know what it is like to live in fear like this.

  2. Dear Irina, I’m so sorry you’re going through this. I pray that God would send rain soon to wash away the smoke. We had smoky skies in the summer of 2018. It was horrible. I hope your blue skies return shortly.
    Blessings from Canada ~ Wendy Mac

      Thank you Wendy for commiserating and your prayers. Thank heavens a southerly wind has cleaned the air overnight. But we can expect more days like yesterday during the summer season.

  3. Thank you very much for this post. I am in Sydney also, and am constantly shocked by the sheer amount of smoke and it’s impact on our community. I have recently published an article on the smoke in Sydney. If you have time, it would be great if you could read it, as I would be really interested to hear your thoughts! Thanks 🙂

    No, you’re right, it doesn’t wholly solve the problem, but it’s a very important component of the solution. Action on climate change will have effect down the track, whereas hazard reduction burning will have immediate effect. And that’s what we need: immediate action to prevent devastating fires next year.
