candle’s light

imagesEvery

human soul
holds a fire
lit by the
master chandler
who forms us
of soft wax
and then
illuminates
our spirits
with his own

brilliant

          LIGHT.

 

Each

flame flickers
brightly, bravely
through the
long, dark
night as we
push away
fear’s shadows,
wick up hope,
burn with
holy joy,

melt to

LOVE.

    As I read your poem, I am picturing our Christmas Eve service where each person receives a candle, which is later lit from the fire of the Advent wreath candles.

    I especially like these lines:
    “push away
    fear’s shadows,
    wick up hope,”
