CAMPFIRE Constanza

Let’s start up a campfire tonight
Gather up some kindling sticks
Paper and a few logs, not too thick
A blazing fire that glows real bright 
Start off small; first just get it hot 
When burning good, then add a lot

White smoke rising, like from a pipe			
Swirls and twists goes with the wind
Move to keep from breathing it in

Popping embers sometime take flight  		
if one lands on you, it’ll burn
brush it off quick; that what you learn 

Fire dies out and you lose all sight			
Just like life, has a start and end
Blazes bright at first, then turns dim

Let’s start up a campfire tonight
A blazing fire that glows real bright
White smoke rising, like from a pipe
Popping embers sometime take flight
Fire dies out and you lose all sight

    Charles, Congratulations on your placement in Andrea’s “Can you Constanza? Contest.” There were so many really amazing entries we had a very difficult time deciding. We had to go by who followed the form best, and whose poem was most creative. I spent 4 and half hours going over the poems and Andrea, a lot longer. Thank you so much for your wonderful entry Mahalo, Connie
