The Bonfire – Haiku-Style Poem

99 Words for a flash fiction challenge over at Carrot Ranch.


Firewood is gathered

Firepit is made, wood is placed

Kindling set throughout


A match is stricken

Holding the flame to the twigs

Smoldering begins


Seconds pass quickly

Twigs caught, setting wood a fire

Bonfire has begun


Aroma intense

Flickering flames hypnotize

Heat is powerful


People gather round

Rubbing their hands together

Over the fire’s glow


Someone starts a song

Everyone joins in singing

Party has started


Guitars are brought out

Strumming and picking is heard

Hands clap out a beat


Cheerful happiness

Cold lagers are abundant

People having fun


The moon is shining

Fire is blazing overhead

Submersing begins
