The illuminating candle

“Over millenium, through darkening night,

we depended on candles, our main source of light.

Today’s glowing candles are still shining bright.

Now a beacon of purpose, Illuminates our sight.”

A Lit Candle 

A lit candle remembers,
 those, no longer there.
A lit candle for causes,
because we all care.
A lit candle to celebrate,
happy, we share.
A lit candle for comfort.
Calm souls we’ve laid bare.
~ Penny L Howe, 2013

The gentle glow of a candle’s light is soft and warm. And just like thousands of years ago, today we still light a candle, only now to be comforted/nurtured in the moment, illuminating our hearts, minds, and deeds.

Have a great day and a better tomorrow,
