  Around a campfire
  Posted by: markk on Dec-18-13 1:45 PM (EST)

On a log, Crazy Creek for a back rest, hoping for loon call, an owl calls. Lake lapping, smoke in the air. Canoe secured. Tent and rain fly ready. Smoke rising, mosquitoes few. Little conversation. Lost in thought. Some memories. Anticipation. Tomorrow. Lost in the moment. A loom calls. Water lapping. Crackle from the fire. A loon calls. Muscles a bit sore, but feels good. Don't eveeeer get tired. Sip a pit of .. I think back with a smile. Moon light now. A loon calls. Wonder how many stars are out. Shield my eyes to see. Nights, soft glow of camp fire. Small fire. Loon calls. Pine scent. Thoughts lost. Together. Lay your thoughts forever. Remember, memories. Times.

I was almost there with you. In my mind. Lost in my thoughts.

Just what kind of smoke you got rising there, pard?
  24 outside headed for 14. No skeeters.

In his stream of conscious
there's a Hemingway chop,
perhaps to parse poetic
at season's paddle paused stop,
this pyrotechnic reflective
loony in its afterglow,
as warmed thoughts often do float
through frozen mantle of snow.

Seems nice to me, Mr. Mark. 'Cept maybe that, "sip a pit of..." thing. I'd much prefer, under your other starry points of perspective, peace and smoke, to sip a bit of, say Maker's, Mark. Them pits are often filled with vipers!
