This year, my theme for the challenge is Strange Feelings: weird and possibly made up words to describe feelings we all have. I'll let you guess if the word is real or not.
––the instinctive trance of a camp fire in the dark
The flames flickered seductively. Like a dancer performing for an audience. In the darkness, crickets chirped and sang, and fireflies flashed. The scent of smoke tinged the air. Sparks flew into the air like fireworks. To my back was the cool night and the bonfire warmed my cheeks. I closed my eyes and tipped my head back. My beer hung loosely in my fingertips.
It was hard to describe the peace my soul felt. Like a calm river on a sunny day. Or a gentle rain pattering on the roof. Bliss would be the perfect word for the moment.
