Iridescent thinking

Wildfire thoughts
Only to be tamed by
Open water.

All released mind wanderings
Snuffed out by the silence and
The waves of late spring.

Saltiness giving away only a breath,
The slightest foretaste of summer. Drowning
The natural disaster, the demolition
That would’ve been
My thoughts.
