Treasure Island

Morhardt Carmen Mencita Monoi Angel

(11.06.1960 / Philippines Manila)

candle flame


candle flame

sun has been shining through
the window screens today
warming our souls and bodies
counting this day as a new gift
thanking life for this blessing
measuring this passing day
with some gentle smiles
angel wings will fly them over
To lighten up at your place
a hazy blue candle flame flickering
through the thickening night!
