The cold
came in
and touched my soul
I feel it
always
feel its hold
and I wander
to the glass
and breathe
the warmth of summer's past...
expelling circles
of the fog
dreaming of
a yuletide log
and all the hopes
of spark within--
the wish, the prayer
to live again...

Solstice
she my dampened friend--
the dark of days
shan't do me in...
I watch
I wait
I bow my head
knowing
loving
light instead...

one candle burning
all I need
a flicker's yearning
plant of seed---
a solitary
whim of need...

a spark of life
dispelling dread
the boast of birth
from something dead.

SweetLittleSerenity~

I see the glow
from candle flicker
burning
burning
burning


Wick holds steady
at the ready
glowing
glowing
glowing


Raindrops
from the sky
or teardrops
from eye
cannot stop
the flame of ~
yearning
burning


*Little love, you lit my fire with inspiration !
Have a wonderful day.
I'm sending sunshine to fall on your shoulders.
Love ya'
~*Mom*~

The light of a single candle is enough to
lead us home from the darkness..enough to
warm a heart that has been touched with
ice...and enought to ignite the soul with
hope and love again...exquisite writing S'en, you
have kissed this one with hopes lips...Love ya my friend~

and all the hopes
of spark within--
the wish, the prayer
to live again...

*********
tonite I'll light you one single candle
and I'll see you there in its warm glow
tonite we will heal in the hope of its light
for tis in the flame ... all that is true will show

tonite I'll light you one single candle
and I'll say a prayer for inspiration to call
then pen a lullaby for serenity to come
and a wish for peace and contentment for us all

**********




thank you to a butterfly for the helping me light this candle

Dear Serenity ~
I see hundreds of candles at your doorstep ... go take a peek.  

Actually, we, here, have lit hundreds of candles in our minds for you and have sent words aloft in your name.


Live for love. Without love, you don't live.

This piece is beautiful!!!  The flow is gentle and fluid.  The images are vivid.  

This is my first post, and after going through everything to get to post, I've already forgotten your author name, but not the effect your piece has had on me.  I also enjoyed the comments so far.  It shows me others were affected by your talent as well.  Thanks for the read.

beautiful, yes indeed.

i have a vendetta against short lines (as yours are) but you made them work.

i love candles. i've written poetry about them, but i find when i write about them, i'm far too cliche.

but you, my dear, have succeeded in not being so.
