Of Candles and Matches and Fire

My mean muse woke me right as I was drifting off to sleep. I had to get up to write this. But I am patient with her, she always has good ideas. This morning, I just added a few touches to this poem.

Candle - photographer, Jon Sullivan

Perfect Match

I am like a candle

pale and plain

patiently waiting for the perfect occasion

but when

you enter the room

you so easily

make the candle do

what it was meant to

do:

burn.

  1. Ohh la la! Your muse was on fire. This is great! I just did a blog entry on the Liebster Blog Awards and named you as one of my faves. You can see it on my blog right now. All the best – and don’t sleep too soundly!
