Darkness cannot overcome
Light from a single candle.
The flame flickers and teases
Shadows on the walls
Which dance
Trying to outwit and elude its glow.
My candle shines bright.
A simple tea light,
The significance
Of endless love and remembrance.
No specific day,
No particular memory,
I light my candle
And send my reminiscence
The gentle smoke is a caress
To the spirits of those departed.
The light of Life
Cannot be overcome
By Darkness.
Long may it shine.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
