 Fire Peace

Updated: Dec 4, 2021

Campfires are a blessing

For tired brains;

They require

No thinking.

The redhot coals pulse

With life,

Ashes lift, relieved

Of their burdens,

And smoke curls free,

Releasing a bouquet of smells

That evoke images

So real

They dance in the heart

Of the redhot coals

Fire cleanses,

And from the ashes

Eventually will sprout

New life.
