The Camp Fire

Beauty in the fire

blazing colors in the night

a crackling sound

embers dancing with delight

Providing warmth

a circle to speak a tale

all around are intrigued

the story is told well

Crackers, marshmallows and chocolate

melting on a stick

sweet dessert

delightful and quick

Gazing at the stars

lighting up the night

dreaming of distance places

the journey is bright

Lulled to sleep

serenaded by the wind

crickets sing a lullaby

a pleasant days end

The sun rises

it is a new day

the journey continues

as we go our separate ways

Out of the ashes

new life emerges
