I Love Sitting Around a Camp Fire

    watching the flames lick the air.

    lights dancing against the dark backdrop of the night. the fire and wood twisted together and giving off heat as lovers should. what a beautiful piece of choreography.

    I love it because actually i have never had a

    chance to do it. I only watch people do it in movies, and it seems very cool 😢

    So many of my memories are from being at the

    lake and sitting around a camp fire with my cousins and laughing and just being our selves listening to music and singing completely off key and not caring. Just being with each other. This doesn't happen very often the next time I will see them all is in May when my dad gets...

    we have a fire ring in our backyard,

    but more times than not, we go to my brother in laws house and have a "fire". He has a concrete patio that is perfect for it.. most of those that are invited bring a snack or something, along with drinks. His wife makes all kinds of food as well..she really goes overboard, so we...

    All my friends say they hate the smell of smoke,

    but everything about a fire-the warmth, the light, and even the smell is comforting.

    Going to my aunt and uncle's house

    for a bonfire and a party is a perfect weekend for me. I especially love roasting marshmallows and spider dogs on the fire. Now that I have an acoustic guitar bonfires will be so much more enjoyable.

    I like to watch the flames dance.

    It's nature's television when you are out camping.

    Flickering feasts of memory's mists In it,

    Let's gather around the camp fire

    and sing our camp fire song. Our C-A-M-P-F-I-R-E S-O-N-G Song! :D And if you don't think we can sing it faster than you're wrong But it'll will help if you just sing along!

    I work at a Christian Church camp.

    Campfires are amazing. Intimate worship, testimonies, stargazing, etc. Where we live, there are more stars than most people have ever seen (no light pollution because we are 40 minutes from any type of town. The friendships I have gained around the fire are way better than those...

    I've always dreamt of sitting by the fire,

    singing my guts out, the ambiance of a gentle flame, the embers dancing the air before they fall the the Earth, dead, the hideous laughter, the jovial tears of joviality, a lake in the distance, the waves crashing secretly, far away and discreetly, the wind through the leaves...

    back a few years ago,

    we'd spend all day doing yard work, gathering broken limbs and piling them up, in my side yard. when we were finished, we had to burn the pile. My brother in law would get it started. I'd go in my trailor and put on a pot of coffee, cook supper, feed the family, hurry up and do...

    I enjoy a fire on a cool crisp fall night with

    family and friends around the fire. Talking, laughing, roasting marshmallows, just hanging out having a great time.

    Especially when it is cold outside

    and the warmth of the fire draws us in, gets rid of the chill, warms us up, with a few good friends, some hotdogs and s'mores :)

    I absolutely love the warmth

    that bounces from the fire as the sun sets in the crisp cool air. Sitting around the fire with friends and of course, s'mores. Haha Nothing like the cool air and the warmth of a camp fire.

    I had a good experience fishing today.

    (Real fish, just in case there is confusion using general terms). We went to a mountain creek early in the morning. 5 AM We got 5 trouts and let them back to the H20. Perfect morning,perfect day and perfect company. I hope your day was good too.

    A camp fire is warm and intimate.

    You can hide in the flickering shadows listening to the cracking twigs in easy silence, speaking only as the words slowly take form in your relaxed unhurried mind.

    I've just been told everyone's going camping

    and they want to stay at mine. Haha, no. I love camping I guess, but I'd wanna do it somewhere not at a house because then you can make camp fires and be loud if you want... :/ Hmmmm. Our last camp out was pretty fun though...
