B is for Bonfire
A bonfire we built at the beach to keep us warm. A beacon in the dark night to guide us back from the water. We talked about ghosts and spirits, of old friends, fireflies and falling in love. The flickering orange flames danced, and the scent of burning wood made us nostalgic---we wondered out loud where the years have gone. We regretted the days we threw in bunches into the bonfire and watched them go up in fragrant smoke. In a moment of silence, we understood that this bonfire was like our life---fragile. Left alone, it would destroy the very things it meant to illuminate.

Gorgeous! We used to build bonfires at our cabin at the lake. Those were memorable days.
I could use one right now. It's 19F and feels must colder.

you seem to be inspired when you wrote these words. i seem to recognize a little poet in you :)
suddenly, i remember my Girl Scout Camping days when we used to have bonfires while telling stories about almost everything!
Very thought provoking and the embers are beautiful.

Bonfire! Great choice for 'B'
Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog. I think they are called Lenten Roses because they bloom during Lent (the time between Ash Wednesday and Easter). The blooms stay on the plant for a long time - these blooms will still be there (and still pretty) when Lent begins in February. They are not related to roses at all.
Have a wonderful day!
i can't tell you how long it's been since i had a bonfire, but i'm enjoying yours :)
