Leap – A Quadrille

img_7495-559517633.jpg

By the fire, I watch flames leap around logs.
Before long, I am removed from surrounding antics
I find myself focused as I come to terms
with the passing of another year.
It feels different –
That cloak of darkness is absent.
I am grateful.

on the turntable

we slow dance
in our nakedness
by the warmth of the fire

Silence

smell of wood fire
creeping into the silence –
quiet reflection

quiet reflection
flames licking around the wood
a healing silence
