The couple sat in front of the dry leaves. The old woman sat next to them. The couple has worked hard. Not the old woman. It was hot. The old woman pondered.


The fire started easily. The smoke enlarged and went up twisting amongst the tall trunks. The dry leaves became ashes. The old woman pondered.


To think that from this smoke comes rain!
