Bonfire (poem)

This poem might have best served in November but I wrote it a long time ago and came across it today. I had mentioned "fire fairies" with someone on Twitter not long ago so thought I would post this poem. Hope anyone who reads it enjoys it and would welcome any comments:


The fire fairies dance
among glowing embers
that flicker hypnotically
on icy winter grounds.
They dance toward the sky
lighting upward layers
of bitter, cold air
which traps all sound
As they climb and climb
they start to disappear
and the ground
returns to dampness
The flickering gone
I am left alone
