Life’s Light #haiku #photography

 

candle-dance

 

 

lips whisper speak

echoes cast golden shadow 

un forgotten flame

 

 

 

 

 

Kristjaan’s prompt at Carpe Diem is Candle. There are so many meanings in the flickering light of a candle – what meaning has it for you?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome Warmth #haiku #dpchallenge

 

warm dawn

 

Dawn Awakens

rising to warm winter’s day

golden horizon

candle glow

candle flickers

breaking bleak night’s cold

warm welcome

This week’s welcome Dpchallenge prompt is Warmth – So fitting on these cold days.

photo-challenge-one #photography #poetry #Christmas

Reach for the light of the world and touch it’s warmth…

One candle shone brightly

on a lonely face

where a smile once belonged

One candle shone brightly

through solitary leaf

worn by days

one candle shone brightly

a tiny creature

burdened and alone

one candle shone brightly

on a world

reaching for the light

fall light

This week’s photo challenge at WordPress is One

Wishing each of you a wonderful and warm Holiday season!!!

Love’s Flicker #haiku #love #photography

two leaves

The slightest touch

a knowing smile chuckles

always connected

*

always connected

hands clasped in the darkness

candle light knows

*

candle light knows

where love’s flicker started

there is no end

Extinguished Candle #911

Candles were lit

life was vibrant

breathing and exhaling

giving, seeking

loving

***

What a gift

each passing day

to hold, caress

learn, teach

experience goodness

***

A Vulture

clouded the sky

darkness filled the realm

a choking smoke rose

extinguishing light

***

We heard your cries

saw your lives come

crashing down

into a heap

of rubble

***

many of those candles

never to reflect

never feel  arms

wrapping them

in warmth

***

We will never forget

the brilliance

that shone

from your

lives

***

we will never

forget

the sacrifice

of  9/11

Our hearts go out to those whose candles were extinguished on that fateful day.

May we never forget those lives, those loves.

Thanks for the Shot of the Candles

In the moonlight

Peering behind the stars

I see a glimmer a glow

a shy warmth

sometimes a sliver

others a full orb

She radiates a brilliance

particular to her smile

it’s golden and soft

if you could hold her

she would be emanate beauty

***

she is pleased

and you know it

for her smile

is cast upon the world

she delights and is caring

she brings light

to those without a candle

she’s content in the knowledge

that for some

she guides their way

***

she sighs

for the lovers

who soak in her glow

making her part

of their oneness

She is content to beam

a golden ray of hope

into the world

rivrvlogr

Looking ahead, without looking back (too often)
