Hiking in the Presidio

RefugeeRefugee San Francisco New

Often,
when I walk in nature
and the music swells in crescendo,
a wildfire catches in my heart
with a thunderous roar,
giant and all consuming.

And then I become airtight.
The flames recede in diminuendo.

I breathe. I release;
and the fire is gone.

It would be such a shame
to disturb the birds.
