For Norm2.0’s Thursday doors, a day late.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt #77: encircle.
Doesn’t the tree look like a hand holding the tree house gently up to look at it?
Our air quality is still bad today. I got my first alarm on my cell phone for bad air quality yesterday: the first time in 18 years.
Here are some links regarding forest fire smoke and your lungs:

The photograph is not a fire: it’s a sunset in Hawaii.
For Wordless Wednesday.
I took this downtown last week. The cat was sitting looking out. As soon as it saw me it headed for the screen part of the window. I couldn’t quite pet it through the screen.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: zest.
I picked the photograph, taken off the dock in Port Townsend in 2017, before reading the prompt. It doesn’t fit the prompt. Oh, yes, it does, it’s the color. Quite gorgeous to watch slowly swimming along.
On a foggy day.
And the opposite shore and even the ferry, can only sometimes be seen.
It’s an ocean
Big enough for us all
Float under the bridge with me
Or wander out to distant ships at sea
Stay on the surface
Or come down in the depths
Leap out and crash back in whale form
Or surf the wake of a boat
Or in the waves to catch a fish
Storms come and rain and rainbows
Sky with clouds lightening sun stars
Climb a rock or lighthouse or cliff
Or stand on a boat
But then return oh love return to the sea
