At Home in the Fire.

Not particularly holiday-related, but I'd like to share a recent short piece nevertheless.

Embers alight, tiny bulbs flickering on
Smoke smoulders and crackling chars the scents and sounds of home
Comfortably warm in blistering heat, cool and relaxed in licks of blue flame
I stretch out and snuggle deeper beneath a quilt of ash
My parlor the fireplace, my bedroom the bonfire
Home and hearth, hearth and home.
