I brood over the petulant flame
as the candle diminishes
to a waxy puddle,
reflecting on the smokey images
pooled on the bottom
of the etched glass holder.
I reach out and light a fresh candle,
creating a new beginning.
Let there be light.
A Wife, Mother, Grandmother with tons of experience in the arena called *Life* I love information, and endeavor to utilize it as practically as possible. I have worked as a Healthcare coordinator, HR Manager for over 26 yrs, and still employed (19 +years) as a Property Manager of a large complex (I joke that I’m the mayor of a small city). I have raised 4 children, one of whom (a daughter) ❤️has recently completed suicide,which has changed my life forever. I have 8 lovely grandchildren. I love to write poetry and short stories, cook, explore religious experiences and be in charge of stuff :)

I love the smokey images that reflect – lovely use of language, strong images and the last line is very evocative
so much symbolism in a candle… and i do love to light new ones… new beginnings…new hope…
life is full of these new beginnings….i like the pause to look at what was before…the remnants of it….before lighting the new….
