along the coast of Lake Charlevoix
a fire was lit and its warmth fought
with the cold and humid wind and
the smoke and water in the air danced with
each element trying to overpower the other
and the family around it
was rooting for the warmth
but they enjoyed watching the dancing together
while bundling up together from the cold
and happily embracing the heat
doing a dance of their own

    Dear Owen,

    Your poem was astonishing and also liked the picture that you have on display.
