JUST ANOTHER CAMPFIRE

 

 

It was just another campfire the old couple sat around…listening to the crackling of the wood…watching the flames push off the ground

 

Watching as sparks break off from the fire to be free…to fly…to soar…just another campfire…like so many campfires they've sat around before.

 

At this campfire it was just the two of them…in the silence of the night…snuggled next to one another…faces illuminated by the light.

 

If you were blessed to be nearby…and watching for a while

you’d have seen them close their eyes…

you’d have seen them laugh and smile.

 

You’d have seen how just another campfire has the ability to transcend...into memories of other campfires…with family and friends

 

If you’d have been inside their minds…you’d see them as children in all their glories…you’d see them toasting marshmallows…feeling the warmth…telling stories.

 

You’d see them with their own family…you’d watch the sweet togetherness a campfire brings…before life and time and growing up…chances everything.

 

You’d sit in wonder around this campfire…realizing why they love it so…knowing it is more than how the flames shoot up and oscillate to and fro.

 

You’’d see it’s not as just another campfire…but a campfire so boundless and vast…it has a way of connecting…through its flames…to all their campfires of the past.
