Often it is obscured, the choice

Considerate thought before invoking voice

Shrouded in all kinds of smoke

The truth again and again cloaked

Can’t see the forest for the trees

Sitting pondering on bent knees

Until a whisper of pure light

Illuminates the path making it bright

Now moving forward shadows left behind

With a helping hand find peace of mind









gray mist

sunlight trees

In a world of black or white

Standing amid a bright spotlight

How I longed for midnight blue

To replace this grayed in hue

Of nothingness that surrounds

Emptiness within abounds

Erase the gray admit the light

Forever happiness shine bright

Beauty of melody encompasses me

Rainbows sunlight songs of glee

Forever held in such esteem

Never more the gray be seen

There’s something romantic about candlelight.  It makes any dinner special.  When my kids were small, I used to dress the table with candles once a week.  Candlelight can make macaroni and cheese special!  Who knew?

Candlelight is a mood changer.  When you walk into a room filled with candles, or a dining room with candles lit, suddenly your relaxed and the cares of the day melt away.  Concerns, stress and worry can’t outshine candle light.  They are instantly forgotten and you’re in the moment, calm and serene.

Seriously though, who doesn’t enjoy a moment in time made special with candle light?  We live such crazy hectic lives that taking time to set a table to make any evening special is warranted and sets the tone with its warm delightful glow.

Special occasions like anniversaries are all the more enjoyable in candle light.  Birthdays with candles covering a cake are special.  Even when we hit the double digits and one candle suffices (cough cough) the occasion feels happy and festive.
