The Beach Fire

Calm water in shades of blue
Being kissed by the late evening sun.
Gathering wood along the shore
Finding treasures,
Squeals of discovery.
Primal joy, the fire brings.
“Look, I made it go!”
Feeding, entranced, hypnotized.
The colour changes on the water minute by minute
As the sun so slowly sets in the summer sky.
This is my window on the world,
This is my place.
Conversation flows along with the water and the fire,
Good friends and roasted marshmallows enhance the moments.
This is my peace.
This is my summer.
