Maybe it's just smoke

3:15 p.m. 
short hike in the woods
nothing extraneous
played in the creek
felt the earth beneath our feet
the elements are alive
water
earth
fire
air
and the ether
visible haze
its a magic time
a rough time
hard on our lungs
making us stop
pause
retreat
and think
making us wonder
what’s happening
maybe consciousness is rising
right now in this moment
our evolution
hanging thick in the air
maybe it’s a warning
from above
or below
maybe it’s the apocalypse
or trump
trying to gas out Canada
or maybe
maybe
maybe
it’s just smoke
