'Fan The Flame'


Twenty-five years of marital bliss,
Almost all of it good times, great times
Like this.
Oh, but we've had our ups and downs,
A couple of times was hit or miss-
Dark clouds moved in, and smiles turned to frowns.
But better days were ahead-
Our vows saw us through,
What was ment, was said.
Now, after more mellow years,
Mostly laughter, not tears.
My face lights up when I say
Your name-
Victoria, our passion's Hot-
Fan the Flame!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

We were at a our best friends birthday bash last night, and the conversation was flowing as freely as the liquor, and we started to talk about plans for our 25th Anniversary and I looked at the candle on the table... at the flame- and I wrote this, and read it aloud to my Wife, Victoria, in front of everybody there. It was quite a moment.

    contained within the simple light upon a candles wick is the cognition of ignition in loves might. and in the sight of eye the flames rise high in true loves conflagration. (Report) Reply
