ill kick this off
and write a verse

this place is safe
feel free to curse.

so write about
your favorite smoke

plot a tale
or craft a joke

just bring your wit
your heart, your soul

create, create
the only goal.

no judgements here
no good, no bad

just tell us how
you deal with TAD

cant wait to read
your inner thoughts

Its time we had
one of these spots.

Something a little longer..

Two crept, in the still of night
in search of fuel for fire,
no sound, save the counsel that was light
A beacon in the mire.

Much wood found, and haul-ed back
To camp, to warmth and home,
Pipes a light and ales a-froth
and sweet thirst quenching foam.

With tools honed and biting keen
craft and cookery had them working,
Away from other trials and tests
Reality, they were shirking.

Hearty meal a-made, on leafy settles
They sat with their pipes smoking,
The flaming jester cracked and popped
Whilst the fellows made merry joking.

What's this? A stir? A guest?
To arms! To cover to seek it,
A bird, or man? Too dark to tell
Not all the wood is well lit.

With night in youth they sat about
To long speech of Irish lore,
The flames danced upon their eyes
And about the forest floor.

Tired feet laid on a sorrel rug
A moment to truly savour,
A burning flame yielded cool smoke
With sweet and pleasant flavour.

How oft these men frequent the wood!
Their pipes forever to smolder,
Though they'll age, as all lads should
Such spirits grow none the older.
