Reeses Winning Entry

Be the pyromaniac you are inside
And watch the enthralling show of fire.
Sparks dancing across uncertain flames
Brightly lighting young faces
Entranced by a fiery sequence.
Night skies divided by fumes
Spiraling into the way of stars and blue
Friends situated around the bonfire
Faces lit with memories of long ago
Brought back by the warmth of
Metaphorical and literal flames.
Chills from sea air are no match for it-
And comfort is embraced in a warm cocoon.
Golden tails, red centers
Colors almost impossible to replicate.
Nearby, an artist lifts the brush
For fire is a challenge,
A giver,
A destroyer, but a healer.
