Around The Campfire

By Emile Pinet

Rising from the fire like a phoenix,
ash morphs into flights of flaming darts.
And shadows mark the fringes of light
extinguishing all unwary sparks.

Scarlet splashes in the molten flames
as cerise and chartreuse ride the waves.
And all eyes follow their rhythmic flow
for their hypnotic beauty enslaves.

Bursts of laughter and bravado bond
in scary tales that haunt the night.
And comradery clamors to be heard
amongst everyone huddled up tight.

Tranquility’s intoxicating,
saturating your soul with its peace.
And it feels like genuine magic
when worries and anxieties cease.

A brotherhood fuels the campfire
united by its flickering flames.
And fragile friendships are rekindled
free from frustration and macho games.
