there are no complexities in a candle

there are no complexities
in a candle.
no need to reflect on what
it can or cannot handle.
a candle does not hate
or generalize.
deciding who should
or should not
be despised.
a candle does not wage
war on the flame that
it bears.
it just shines a light,
that is meant to
be shared.
love forever shines

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
