Campfire – A Poem

Dark night

No fright

Warming hands delight

Crackle snap

Snuggle lap

Conversation on tap

Scent of pine

Red gold shine

Crickets on a party line

Hazy smoke

Enfolding cloak

Scent of safety, summer bespoke

This poem was originally in response to Gina’s prompt at dVerse Tuesday Poetics last Tuesday. I had many ideas and smelly – I mean, aromatic – memories for this prompt, but this poem fits my mood right now. I might post the other poems at a later date. With the cooler weather, a campfire and cuddles seem to be in order!
