Campfire

 

IMG_0558

(for Roger)

It is a no burn day,

so he cannot build

a real fire,

 

but must be content

with gaslight,

which is decorative,

but not enough.

 

He longs for

a wide open space

where a real fire pops,

where one can connect

 

with that primitive place

underneath the stars.

There he can play with sticks,

create a blaze,

 

gaze at Mars

while the fire speaks

to that ancient dance

he never quite left behind.
