Camping Thoughts

Camping by Fire

Camping Thoughts


Bird songs in the morning,

Cricket’s creak in the night.

The crackling of the fire,

A serenade delight.

The calling of the Loon,

Owls giving out their hoots,

Howl of the lonely wolf,

Amazing camp pursuits.

Clear refreshing morning,

Drink coffee with the dawn.

Watching colored sunrise

As I spy a spotted fawn.

Silvered starry evening,

Tall tales around a fire,

Marshmallows are roasting,

The things that I desire.

Revel in God’s nature

Memories that will stick

To treasure forever

Hear my camera click.


Author Notes

I’ll be there soon.

For me, camping and photography go well together.

Simple Quatrains. ABCB rhyme scheme. Syllable count 6.

This is a photograph I took of my daughter, Aisha, my son-in-law Jeremy, and grandson, Jeremy Thomas (JT). Taken in July 2011 while camping with me at Lake Elmo Regional park in Minnesota. My RV in the background.
