Campfire Addicts
~~~
Gentle glow of embers flicker
ignite the kindle
flames unfold
Logs catch bright as smoke gets thicker
flames of red with blue tipped gold
~
Children smile while toasting mallow
weenies sizzle on a fork
Friends and neighbors
getting mellow
enjoying warmth of campfire folk
~
Seasons greetings friendly campers
change of pace
from weekly work
Can't wait to hear the latest gossip
your weenie's done
please pass the fork
~~~

I got a chuckle with the ending  
Loved this read, Rex.  I'm picturing the campfire...your words describe it so well.
Thanks!

Thanks for reading ... totally toasty is correct ... and don't forget to drop the weenie into the ashes a couple times to
season the taste

"Getting mellow" with the reading of this glowing poem, Rex...this is lovely with just the right touch of whimsy. I am definitely a campfire addict.

... and let the marshmallows (stacked two deep on the stick) catch on fire, brown to perfection, blow it out... slide off the toasted shell with your fingers... get roasty toasty white stuff all over the place... and stuff it in yer mouth all in one bite.....

I don't prefer ashes, but it sounds like a great time. Actually I have a big fire pit in my back yard.

Who's coming for a weenie roast? Don't forget the marshmallows!

Rex~
Cutting palmetto fonds and sharpening the stems to put those weenies and marshmallows on.  And then one of those 'old' popcorn baskets .. just for the campfire !
Hey, anyone for 'Smores'?
Great memory shaker, Rex.

Claire ... Good friends round a campfire ...
It doesn't get much better

Nan ... sounds like you've done it once or twice ... we'll give you a finger bowl

Denise ... it sure does and it's back to give us more

WhtDove ... we put a firepit in our yard last year and it's probably the best investment we ever added to our yard ... who needs to camp ... friends gather all week long ... it's great

Martie ... put a pit in your yard ... and they'll come ... new memories

Marge ... love the smores but they don't love me ... we do all kinds of Pie Irons
... the pizza ones are good ...
... I'm getting hungry ...
