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,
Just………
Because.
I light my candle
And send my reminiscence
Skyward.
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 and wacky sense of humour 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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
