    Peace

    A roaring fire is one of the most peaceful things I can think of in life. It reminds me of my childhood spent around the campfire as my father played card games with us or told us stories by the kerosene lantern's light.  Even just thinking about it now brought peace over me...

    I recently enjoyed watching my husband's ******

    burn in a fire. When I found out he was gay and was having an affair with his best friend of 35 years, I gathered up love letters, pictures, lingerie, and anything else (****** included) that reminded me of the lies I had been living in and I threw them in the fire. It was...

    Fires always remind me of good times :)

    bonfires by the lake roaring marshmallows, fireplace warming the house on winter mornings, candles in the closet with my sister while we roast mini marshmallows on toothpicks. It's just so calming to me to look at a flame and remember the past.

    Fire is awesome. If you have any kind of copper,

    add it to the fire. You'll get rainbow flames.

    It's mesmerizing and warm

    and reminds me of campfires because camping is filled with fun and laughter and silliness and memories of kidless, care free nights and drinking and skinny dipping and not being a responsible adult. I love those memories. I grew up way too fast.

    I love looking at fire!

    When I was younger I would stick a piece of wood in the fire and watch how the fire would burn the wood. I would sit down and just stare at in a trance not averting my eyes. I love how it's Soo full of life and how it's powerful and strong. Fire is beautiful and dangerous like a...

    we need ANFO, C4, and maybe triethylaluminum.

    lets blow a building up: like a school, or an apartment complex and get like 500 people or so and lets just chill under the stars and watch the constellations. we can observe how the night sky blue fades to a bright, vibrant purple and maybe catch a shooting star. maybe play...

    Mesmerizing

    A single flame or a roaring fire. There is just something so mesmerizing about watching the way fire moves, dances, breathes with a force of it's own. It is heat, light, it can be a savior and can be a destroyer. Fire to me is hauntingly beautiful and by staring into the heart of...

    I unloaded five packing boxes tonight

    and to celebrate I lit our log burner. I threw a few logs on and burnt a load of packing material, is was a lovely end to a frantic evening.

    It takes me away, the look of fire,

    to another world, twisting, turning, climbing, swirling, red, blue hue, yellow and orange, up and aside and all around, the visions always bring life to a curious intellect, wondering and wandering flames, into the sky, against a black drop of night.. Trees around, especially...

    From The North Ship: By Philip

    Larkin XVIII If grief could burn out Like a sunken coal, The heart would rest quiet, The unrent soul Be still as a veil; But I have watched all night The fire grow silent, The grey ash soft: And I stir the stubborn flint The flames have left, And grief stirs, and the...

    When I was little we always had gas fires set

    up with coals. I would sit with my dog in front of the fire and read a book or state into the flames. It was so relaxing. I always wanted the power to control fire as well. When we traveled long distance in the car I would imagine whole swaths of the land that was flying by...

    It is just magical! I don't know what it is,

    but fire keeps intriguing me. Not just flames, but also glowing wood. Every second is different, it is unpredictable. You just can't get bored with it!

    It's something you can't explain.

    The sound is relaxing. The smell is calming. You feel the glow on your skin. But I guess that's the thing you can't really explain beautiful things.

    Fire

    Flicker. Come watch it flicker. The fire dances to the same tune as you and I As we sway across the room. Our feet can create intricate patterns, Marking the soft rug beneath our bare feet. I’ll hold your hand, you’ll hold my heart And we’ll watch the merry flames leap from...

    I found that looking at fire is relaxing

    and hypnotizing. It just puts you in a calm trance. It's also great if you have a lot on your mind and want to think or just empty your thoughts for a bit.

    Fire is mesmerizing..

    . It's ability to destroy, and it's capacity to create, intertwine in a beautiful display of raw, carnal power.
