candle light


Light
Candle light
Fragile and flickering
Yet confidently contradicting the darkness
Dark at its base
Yet cheerfully bright at its tip
Weak in its vulnerability
Yet strong enough to light
A thousand other candles
New with each candle lit
Yet as old as the eternal flame
As welcome as the lover’s embrace
Yet as frightening as the judge’s piercing eyes
A warm light bringing hope to the lost
Yet a cold light bringing warning to the hunted
A winter’s light contrasting with the season’s darkness
A birthday candle celebrating another year of life
Yet a funeral parlour candle celebrating a life that is finished
A candle on the birthday cake that is blown out
Like a candle in the wind.
