Home Fire

Wood stacked by the fire,
Candles on the hearth
Create shadows that evoke stories,
Childhood memories:
The rattling of the poker,
Curtains closed, dinner cooking,
Fire-grazing, head in a book.
Warmth encircles the room
Promoting lethargy and insouciance,
A floatation chamber between two worlds
Recreating the past in the present.
I am comfortable.
I am home.
