ik 336
Fire (controlled)

mesmerized by
the flickering illuminated
gases of burning hardwoods;


Inspired by: Use your fireplace.

good fortune right now.

Karma is cause and effect. Dharma means cosmic law.
Yoga is enlightenment through movement and Tao is the
practice of acting in harmony with the fundamental essence
of everything you encounter.

Note: My haiku (or other forms) are my interpretations
or of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.

            • I’ve got family both compensated and volunteer firefighters… over 100 years between 6 people. Mostly volunteer. Just about two years ago our youngest became a paid firefighter (now for two states).
              Stay safe.
              Our home fireplace is behind class doors. It isn’t the primary source of heat.

              • That’s an impressive amount of years over one profession.

                I went for a job as a retained fireman a lot of years ago, but I had to get to the station in under five minutes, and even at full sprint, I couldn’t do it. A retained fireman is a volunteer.

                • Hubby and his brother both have 25 years (plus) each. Our children went through the Jr programs starting at age 14. The Eldest got his wife to be a volunteer…

                  One tries to get to the station on time to get on the trucks/ apparatus – for a call. But we actually live the furthest away. At least though travel is by car and not foot. Hubby just went on a Hazmat (hazardous materials) call this morning at around 4 am. A tanker trunk jack-knifed on a local road.

    • It isn’t entirely open…we have outside combustion and glass doors. But the wood sits on a hollow metal tubes and the fan takes the room air in and then goes through the tubes, is warmed up and blown back out. Just a tad better energy efficient wise than an open fire place which draws air from the all over and makes the rest of the house cold…all except that room where the fire is. Often an open fire only warms the heart (sigh)…not really the body or the room.
