A Moment of Peace

A Moment of Peace

A Poem by turtlegirlluver

What I heard and saw while sitting around a camp fire while camping one night.


 Soft acoustic guitar music flows gently to my ears

As I gaze upon a majestic beast of fire

The warm glow illuminates my face

As my body is fed by it's warmth.


The sound of crickets and birds add white noise

     throughout the night

And the sound of giggly children travel by

As I turn my eyes to the heavens

     thousands of bright stars fill my vision

As I am reminded of how small we really are.


As sparks fly from the fire,

I turn my gaze back and am memorized

     by its beautifully dangerous state


A voice now adds to the song

As the guitar cords slowly gain volume

The sweet song travels to my ears

And fills me with an uncommon moment of peace.

This is very good. Well done expressing physical feelings and imagery as well as emotions. The format is fine, I thought you did it on perpose actually. Keep on writing, whimsicle as it may be.

I love to perform, write, and read. I love sea turtles and want to save them. I am obsessed with music and listen to it any chance I get. I feel that writing is one of the best ways that I can express.. more..
