“the earth is on fire,” i try to scream, when i find myself floating in space, in a dream. the earth was on fire, with dust and smoke quickly replacing all of the atmosphere’s air. i didn’t know where I was, other than space, but i knew that i was not safe, and that something terrible had taken place. the clouds of dust somehow erupt from the earth, and surround me. voices join me in the dust, but there are too many to understand, and the languages are not my own. more and more voices, including mine, call out – dissolving the sounds into one solid tone. the dust then moves slower, and gets more thick. darker and darker, it gets difficult to move, and i panic. the dust around me becomes dirt that i am buried in. so, i begin to dig in the direction i decide is up. for hours, i fight. finally, it’s enough, and i move into light. i pull myself out onto frozen ground, stand, and look around. long dead dogs are half buried in snow. a child kneels next to me, and she is mourning the dead. the sun is setting, and tthe sky is burning red, orange, and gold. the girl looks at me, then the sky, and says, “the earth is on fire.”
