Ochre twighlight

Walking home early this afternoon I passed beneath an oak tree shedding acorns
Some of them bounced and popped when they hit the street
I gathered up a few nuts to bring home for the squirrel
(Or squirrels) who clamber around and seem intent to burrow under our front porch

Later on I read about the air quality warning due to forest fires to the west and south
British Columbia and Washington

Making dinner tonight
Sunlight on the counter and remarkable memorable light
Filtered through future memories
Of where we find ourselves now
