Recovering The SelfA Journal of Hope and Healing


An Immortal Candle

Posted on by in Poetry

Walking the rut of darknessTwo Candles cover
In a moment of time
My eyes were dazzled
Unknowingly I had covered an interminable stretch
Appearing inches away from an invisible hand
Holding an immortal candle
Its light touching lightly my heart
Its flame burning me down to ashes
Yet rising again from my remains
I fly off to try my wings
Carrying the light in my eyes
This poem is part of my poetry book Two Candles (Sarah Book Publishing, 2014).
