Word Prompt: Campfire

Around the pit ghosts sway and twirl

Flames licking their crackling toes

In the cool black hour of night

Tragic souls conjured from other worlds

Below loose soil they beat and fight

Fists against dense rock cells

Howls of redemption lost

Vanquished by the living’s blustery winds

We call them forward one by one

Chilled visions to warm shivering skin

A somber waltz in play above the fire

Around the pit, the sway and twirl

Higher and higher


About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
