"Staring into the fire on a thin dark night
Velvety clouds roll by, with a bat flying above
You throw a yellow-brown wet wood log into the pit of the fire
It spits tiny pieces of green diamonds back at, and all around you.
Your snack is a baked green apple. Its flavour mixes with nearby herbs and wet wood
It won't let you sleep...so fresh, so powerful
You sip a bit of a mate from your Calabash and tell yet another story....
The night is fresh and alive....."
