The Real World Around a Campfire

The best foil to turmoil is quiet and nature. Even better is quiet and nature with loved ones around a campfire.


The Real World Around a Campfire

Many a yarn has been shared,
stories and truths,
‘round a campfire
dodging smoke
like musical chairs
to spots the breeze
still smooths.
We pulse closer
then telescope out
as the heat rises and falls
until the big slow-burner log
steadies the smolder
as quiet darkness blocks out
the screaming world
to just our knowing circle
with only the frogs croaking
and our laughter
in loving company
the real world
‘round a campfire.
