the flicker of light from the fire

Posted on

the flicker of light from the fire

converses with the colors of fall

strewn about the frail

crisp surface

a soft glow appears in its center

veins acting as pathways

guiding the light and the yellows and oranges

 

in some places

the light is blocked by its curves

casting shadows on the colorful surface

next to the fire these spots appear burnt

frail

that at the slightest touch or gust of wind

they will crumble

sprinkle to the ground

becoming nothing more than the particles

that make up the dirt

trampled everyday by those larger than it

leaf
