S. Walker: ‘Fire & Landscape’

Fire & Landscape

Deep in the landscape
Smoke billows,
Downwind embers light exchanging glances,
Everyone arrives and the table is set,
The front porch roars with excitement,
Kids playing.

Tapping at the windshield,
An unconventional gift,
Wind respires the flames,
A searing glow spreads through the tree line,
Plates licked clean,
Another year replete.
