The Campfire

the campfire is everything 
the ring of flames
bring tranquility
to the unease 
of modern life 
worries melt
fears burn away
flickers of humanity return
the children poke sticks
the adults stir the embers
we all live and die 
by fire in some form
but the campfire 
the campfire is everything 

[poem #30 for April! National poetry month.]
