Autumn Bonfire

The house is empty, and the moving trucks have driven off, and all left to do, is burn the remains that will not make it to the new home. There is a large pile of old and broken furniture and other pieces of wood that will burn to ash. We are used to big fires on Walpurgis night to mark and celebrate the beginning of spring. This time winter is approaching, but still, the fire is a mark and celebration of a change and the anticipation of something new.
