Fire break

The Lowveld (beneath the escarpment): So close to the eastern shore of Africa, the sun sets visibly earlier at this time of the year. Autumn has peeked its head around the next corner, just over there. I feel it tug on my heart strings; a time for introspection, reflection. It's also the time for the wonderfully pungent, wintery reek of veld fires as the breaks between the forests and farms are burnt, also the verges along the roads.
