bonfire

99 Words for a flash fiction challenge over at Carrot Ranch.

 

Firewood is gathered

Firepit is made, wood is placed

Kindling set throughout

 

A match is stricken

Holding the flame to the twigs

Smoldering begins

 

Seconds pass quickly

Twigs caught, setting wood a fire

Bonfire has begun

 

Aroma intense

Flickering flames hypnotize

Heat is powerful

 

People gather round

Rubbing their hands together

Over the fire’s glow

 

Someone starts a song

Everyone joins in singing

Party has started

 

Guitars are brought out

Strumming and picking is heard

Hands clap out a beat

 

Cheerful happiness

Cold lagers are abundant

People having fun

 

The moon is shining

Fire is blazing overhead

Submersing begins
