What is sacred in our lives is influenced

By many thoughts, beliefs in continuance

Whether it be sacred ground

That you will not walk around

Or animals too holy to feast upon

They are not the only ones

Some consider their body a temple

And revere it as something special

The feelings from deep within our soul

Essences that make up humans as a whole

Sacred songs and sacred chants passed on

Sometimes hummed and sometimes sung

A reminder of life long ago

Now sacred to all who know

The battles, wars, emotional scars

Carried oft’ wailing to the stars

Undoubtedly life itself so special

Something to treasure as celestial

Newborn babes so innocent and pure

Many life struggles they endure

To reach the pinnacle of all that is

Deciding what shall be her or his

Most sacred moment throughout time

That which becomes their internal rhyme

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.








For some a sandwich is not a meal

It holds you over until something real

Others see it as very special

Two pieces of bread on which to nestle

A mighty combo piled so high

A bevy of food stacked on rye

Deli shops will have your mouth water

The aroma hits your nostrils and in you saunter

Choices so delicious and fresh

It’s difficult to know what’s best

Ah tomorrow’s another day

In which to try another entree

For now I consume that so delicious

A mouthful of joy nothing capricious

Heaven captured on bread

Oh  and add a little spread.

My day is not quite complete

Without this my exquisite treat.
