Escape to Paradise
By Brynn Green
Sitting around the fire
the flames flickering
vibrant reds, blues, greens, and purples
the heat surrounds my cool skin,
surrounded by friends
Darkness enveloped me
the soft cracks and pops of the fire.
The conversations overwhelm my ears
while smelling the burning wood.
Slowly turning the rod in my hand
the marshmallow browns.
Peeling it off he rod
as the gooey center enters my mouth.
Watching the stars shoot by
sitting back in my chair relaxed
escaping my normal duties
enjoying my summer evening.
