Fireside chat

Crackling of the fire
laughter in the night
Fire flies aglow
family with friends
stories are told
past and present
hopes and dreams
reaching to the core.
Wisdom of elders
repeating traditions
Nary a soul
Understanding wisdom
in the legends of Sages
Mythology, superstition
They say
Time elapses
Child becomes the elder
Wishing the young
would listen
to the stories
of the sages.
