campfire

Snapping cracking  Box implodes on self, turning rapidly into an inferno
Smoke travels into eyes. I change chairs. Down wind was southwest
Now smoke is traveling due north Loud pop. Bright orange flames Flare up from twigs which are blackening and graying in a snake-skin type pattern.  The fire is alive. I watch fascinated.


baby flames bright orange 
springing up around gray ash 
crackling and popping

I do so want the Poetry Soup Convention to come to me at least once before I hit 90.

Thank you Charlie. I truly do appreciate knowing that you recognized this as a haibun as I am never sure. I LOVE flames, bonfires, and lovely comments like this so much, Charlie.

Get your buns over to Kansas and bring those limbs with you! I am only two states over, right?

I have Wild Women Campfires often, and I love them so much, I feel like a pyromaniac! Such a great place to relax with friends, and all kinds of secrets come out.
