Camp Fire


The playful fire dances
Amber-red, flourescent-green,
Flinging impish sparkles
At imperious, distant stars,
Making merry mischief
'neath the haughty
Yellow profile of the moon...
Whilst graciously the velvet night
lends her empty canvas
To every gleaming planet,
glittering flame
and glowing lantern..Oblivious,
the tiny fire
cheekily competes
for his place on Nature's
evening stage
from his humble fire-pit.

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
