Thought I could go unnoticed,
Without anybody knowing I’d gone
Had a couple of posts in WordPress scheduled,
To hide my whereabouts.

But something came up just as I’d feared – 
A brush fire in Cajon Pass newsflashed,
Alerts erupting on my iPhone,
Headlines on Twitter displaying away.

Walking down the cobbled streets of Cornwall,
Feeling distressed at the news while, at the same time,
Feeling happy at the blessing that I was away,
But if I were there stuck in the Cajon Pass,
Don’t know what I would’ve done…
*Thank God for the rain!*
