night fire burning sparks

Photo by Miriam Espacio on


i needed the fire to provide warmth, safety from the dark, desolate night.

i sat alone, afraid of the dark, afraid of what i could not see………

i heard sounds of creatures that may be lurking in the dark shadows to hurt me

i needed to rest, but i was too fearful………..

as the fire began to die and the sun began to rise, i looked around and found

i was not alone….

i was never alone………..but i was too afraid to take my eyes off the flames……… recognize the sounds were human not beast.  i was never in danger……..he was always there, i just wouldn’t see.

  1. I love it! I can picture how the fire looks and what it would feel like. Thank you for sharing! Comforting to know that I am never alone.

  2. This made me think of so many things, one to open my eyes, because even when they’re open I can’t see what’s right in front of me! Two, perspective, things don’t always have to be one way, I have to see it from a different angle to appreciate them and understand why things are the way they are. Great read!
