Hidden In The Flames
Last weekend, we had our final bonfire of the season. We had to burn lots of fallen branches from around the yard and took it as an opportunity to roast a few marshmallows. B threw a couple of large logs from a hallowed out tree that had fallen last Spring. The flames were just dancing inside the carcass of the tree.
Licking the sides in two inward circular motions giving the impression (to me at least) of multiple hearts racing through the log.
We were amazed by the final transformation of the flames once they had raced through the log. Each of us found different faces in the flames.
One was haunting, another almost evil, then there was a sweet happy one. Maybe it was the spirit of the tree being released back to nature. What faces do you see??
