On Daddy's Knees

….The flame flickered before….


ON DADDY’S KNEE



He is perched safe and secure on his daddy’s knees
As the flame flickered before his baby blue eyes
The glowing effect mesmerising his young mind
Colours wavering, patterns dancing, shapes undefined
Tongues of flames the same colour as his red hair
With its copper tints, shining golden hues and sunshine flair
The crackles and pops and hisses as the heat ignites
Nuggets of coals, the smell of the firewood, sparkling firelight
Father and son’s love sealed at this moment in time
Generation to generation in times to come
A treasured relic of their shared history
A homespun fire to make the loveliest memory.
