The light of a candle…

yellow candle



The light of a candle.

What beauty it illumines.

What warmth it portrays.

Effervescent glow.

In stillness and quietness its just for show.



The light of a candle.

A yellow glow fills the room.

Where once all was dark.

And one would stumble to find a spark.



The light of a candle.

The hallmark of the season’s – in scented candles.

The benchmark of celebrations – where memories are had:



A candle is the softness of spring.

In pastels that invite approach.

A candle is the brightness of summer.

Where nothing seems to pull one under.

A candle is the pillar of winter.

Where the softness of white

covers all by twilight.
