Sitting By The Fire

I am sitting by the fire
Studying from a safe withdraw
Breathing in its fearsome ire
Filled with wonder – filled with awe

I am staring at the shadows
Which frolic past the light
I see them geared with spear and bow
Somber creatures of the night

I can hear the pine trees wave
In the emptiness overhead
The wind is cold. The trees are grim
I can only think of bed

I can feel the burning heat
Crackle of the burning lumber
I think about the daylight sweet
Phantoms watch me as I slumber

One thought on “Sitting By The Fire

  1. Ooh… I like this one a lot. I especially love this verse:

    I am staring at the shadows
    Which frolic past the light
    I see them geared with spear and bow
    Somber creatures of the night

    Awesome imagery. So I’m not the only one who sees things in the fire… 😀
