Evening Embers

summersunset.jpg

 

Evening embers, stirred

slow and deliberate

as the fire burns low,

afterglow of warmth

.

Talk turns contemplative,

each staring into

coals of yesterday, where

memories dance in flickers

.

Carefully turning

marshmallow clouds

so they don’t

go up in flames

      One of my favourite ways to spend my summer evenings is to sit by a fire and enjoy the reflections that come so naturally when watching those magical flames. Thank you!

  7. I love “memories dance in flickers”–and “marshmallow clouds”, yummmmm!
