Sparks dance like fireflies
Against the blue green gray sky
The allure of the flames
Blue and yellow and green and red
Draw me out of my terror
As thunder rumbles without pause
Lightening flashes big and bold
Yellow and silver across the sky
The smell of mint fills the air
Criss cross applesauce
Burning wood and hair
Dirt, soot, refuse
Colors dance before my eyes
Ever changing always the same
Deathly still, no breeze
Smoke rises in all colors
Gray, black, brown, white
The breeze starts
Mint drifts through the air
Trees sway
Flames dance
Rain drops start to fall
Steam rises from a t-shirt
Rain and sweat flow together
Faces red and hot
Close to stir the fire
Far to watch it burn
Against the ever darkening sky
Sparks dance like fireflies
