Burn

Standard



The freedom

Of a candlestick 

Is none 

But to burn

And burn it does

Waxing 

Melting

Wasting

It’s life away

Only one passion

The flame

Giving light

Sparking interest 

Glowing 

In wee hours

Cutting darkness

A small warmth

On a cold 

Lonely night 

A singular beauty 

Upon a pedestal

No choices

But to burn

welcome flames

Standard
take the edge off the gloom
with a fire's bright burning.
pass through the stormy grey days
with the flicker of flames.
and in the darkened gloaming,
mild wafts of smoke bring not harm,
but rather cleanse the dreary temple
and warm cold heart and bone.
raising spirits stood upon 
the hearth by pleasant blaze;
kindling hopeful, happy change.
