Fire Ignited


As the candle is lit
a tiny spark
that flourishes
and blooms
into a flame

fire ignited
it dances
making shadow puppet figures
on the cold stone walls

a gust of wind
through the open window
the night queen
sending her cold breeze
to take the life
of the flickering flame

that dies out
ever
so
slowly
and then it's gone

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
