Watching the Fire!

The night was cool,fall is here
I stared at the fire becoming mesmerized
The flames grew higher stopping my chill.
As I gazed at the fire the night grew still,
It's calming effect still makes me surprised.
It was so soothing that I felt embraced,
The crackle and groan and the sparks they flew,
Making colors of red, gold and blue,
I sat there watching, holding the hand of my dearest friend,
My husband and I had no reason to speak, no words need be said,
We sat and shared a magic moment, till the fire went out.
Today was my best day, of this I have no doubt!

  1. I too love a fire, I use my fireplace almost every day during the cold months. I loved your poem and enjoyed knowing how contented you were feeling.......may you always feel this way my friend.......:-) Hugs

  2. Thanks Bernie, you know it was the first time all summer we used it. I really enjoyed it just gazing into it. I just have a little electic fireplace but I do like the ambiance. I
    hope you had a nice day today. You are always in my thoughts. Take care,c

  3. OH my! This is fantastic, Cinner! I love your wording, you make me feel good!

  4. Thanks Monica, it was fun, first time all summer or should I now say fall. Hugs

  5. Your words are so very dear. Nice one, Cinner. I'm liking the change to fall here... pretty!

    I was just saying last time we all sat around the fire...I believe the need to stare for hours at a fire must be genetically encoded in humans. We all do it, and we all feel the calm of it. It's very soothing I think.

  6. You changed your colors and photos again! Great poem. I can picture you and your husband in front of the fire holding hands.

  7. Cinner
    I love the new look of your blog and I love your poem as well!
    Have a great day, I just know you will!


  8. C-Woman, you are giving me all the tastes of autumn I need, which are absent here so far ... the poem is tender & inviting ... and the photo! oh, how I wish we ever needed a fire here! thanks for sharing that.

    Your new blog layout is luscious. Hey, that reminds me - when I'm visiting you, am I supposed to be hearing a bird sound? Like a bird tweeting? cuz I do ...

  9. That is lovely Cinner. And I love the new bog look... oh Autumn, how I love thee. xx

  10. Thanks Sara, I love the colors the best. have a great day.

    Toni, no bird sounds if you stay long enough you will hear my playlist....yes there is a bird! you make me laugh, The second song is beautiful. Have a great day. I am glad you are well.

    Margie, thanks it means alot coming from you. your poems are always so beautiful. Have a great day.

    TechnoBabe, I changed them again, Do you think I am addicted? No I thought I would go with a fall theme. There was supposed to be leaves falling down...but nothing I did worked.. Take care my friend.

    Thanks Holly, I like the change too, I know nothing more soothing. I am glad we took the time at the end of the day. Big Hug.

As a child that is how we heated our home...there is nothing like wood heat to take the chill out of the air. I miss it allot.
