Candles Flicker

Mind churning in speculation
doubts forming into life
candles flicker
the eye of truth
woven intricately
through the flame.

Trace the hidden, lurking shadows
in a paint by number scheme
slowly energize
the morning
by connecting
to the light.

I love how you've pared the idea down its very bones. Candles, light, morning, all are significant things aren't they.  
I do wonder if there's anything specific about 'the light' ? or is this a general good term? Very interested to know.

Seaangel:Thanks for reading and yes there all related. The light at the end was cause it brought in a positive reflection so I guess it would be considered general. Thanks again I appreciate much.

This is very pretty, LostDreamer.
Methinks I like it. I do.
