A warm fire's ambiance beckons on a wintry day cold of night gets thawed away Wood crackles, pops and snorts flames rage hot, sparks cavort soothing to lackluster heart Thoughts return to years gone seeking truth once burned strong Fire's aroma burns robust On the cusp of emotion's stance passion's blaze grows bright Such intensity there is in fire Stoking the coals revives to higher Fire in the belly, spirit in the soul Forces of power and mind let go
A special thanks to Duane, Mark, Lora...and always JCH for helping me learn/grow, [you know!]

Hi Dellena; you certainly have become quite the poet my friend and this one is very special indeed. First of all the title "Fire Gazer" has a pulling effect for there is nothing more relaxing to me then to sit and watch a fire burning whether it be in my wood stove or outside in an open spot for toasting marshmallows.....your opening stanza brings forth a warm feeling as the coldness of the winter night is removed by the crackling fire...actually I so enjoy the sounds of the crackles, pops and the flames that are rage hot....and yes it is so easy my friend for our thoughts to turn back the hands of time to days gone by, other places, other people and other loves.....there is so much within the lines of this read, you certainly have created some pretty lovely images with the flare of your pen. Stoking the coals revives to higher Fire in the belly, spirit in the soul Forces of power and mind let go a fitting end to this read. Well, indeed you have been listening to some pretty great friends here on the link and it is nice to see you give thanks to them as well. I have not been doing much on line these days as my computer has been down more then up. I lost all my poems, points for critiquing and whatever I had earned over the past years due to my computer crashing down all around me...I need to begin again and I will give it a good try. For now I am on home oxygen due to the lung and heart problems but you know I can't let that keep me down. Got too many beautiful grandbabies to play with and great brandbabies too. Take good care, will always check for your poetry on this site. Stay as well as you can, my prayers are always with you. God Bless, Claire
