Poem Idea - By Candle Light

The small flicker of a flame…the dripping of that wonderful, hot wax…the subtle warmth of the fire represent a candle in full use. Think about the wick as it stands before it provides the comfort. Think about the small beads that form as the heat ravages the delicate wax. Think about the small glimmer of sparks the newly formed light provides.

Focus on the process of finding the flame of the candle. Focus on the burning that provides the glow. Focus on the activities you can accomplish as the flame flies from one breath of air to another. Keep your thoughts focused and flowing, but create the essence of the candle. Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
