You can hear the sparks
crisply crackling through the wood
carried by the breeze of the night.
Marshmallows roasting, their scent
wafting in the air, paired with
the musky scent of fresh rain
and the silence which surrounds it.
Laying on the back of a lawn chair,
with its sturdy material, cushioning you
from the wet ground, its legs holding you up.
You inhale the air,
the smell of s'mores
and the musky after- rain scent
fill your nostrils with its calming effect.
Surrounded by friends around a bonfire,
it's radiance and warmth
reflect your emotions at this very moment
that of happiness, peace and contentment.
