Bonfires

Copper, gold, and chestnut
Playfully melding together
Fragile feathers of warmth
Licking at charred wood
Soft and frail
Yet rough and raging
Plumes of charcoal
Race to the sky
Easily destroys
Yet easily destroyed
Faces aglow
Heat emanating
Sticky puffs of white
Melt in the colors
Sandwiched between graham
And soft sweet umber
A delicious little treat
Made just for summer
Sitting in the moonlight
Hooded against frigid air
Pieces of light scattered in the sky
Aromatic smoke surrounds
