Small fire

October 20, 2013

Huddled around the outdoor
fireplace in the backyard,
we are grateful for the fire,
as it gives us light and heat
and weapons of sticks aflame
should we need to use them
against a ferocious beast
showing up and maneuvering
in such a way that blocks
our rush into the house
behind the safety of a locked

door—
but I remember reading
tales of ferocious beasts
being able to break through

windows—
and they can even
blow a house down
with a mighty breath—

so sticks aflame could
very well come in handy.

    Ah…but if it rains, you must refrain from using sticks with small fires to fight the beast for they might just have a feast….of you. Now see what you’ve done with such a clever verse…made me try to rhyme…have a great weekend.
