Of a Candle

Prompt from here: https://sammiscribbles.wordpress.com/2018/02/17/weekend-writing-prompt-42-revelation/


Appealing of the lightened glow

Before the shadows engulfing it,

Candle takes its cue of separation,

Defiant with the darkness of the world.

Energy is effused and then spent

For a reminder of starlight and sunlight.

Guided by laws that bar no one,

Her approach is of care from a distance.

Inside she is all hollow yet bright,

Jewels of atoms and particles unite

Kindled by fiber she remains alight.
