The Happenstance of Candlelight


The Happenstance of Candlelight

Candlelight can cause the walls to dance,
or so I once observed. Its beauty brought
the world to knees, innocent as fire.

Alone so tender, touching hearts, preparing
happenstance, that flame bright as morning
sun, it lights the universe. Glow deep

in hues of golden hair, softly hum a dance
of candlelight. Attentive hands shall warm,
attentive smiles I see. Shadows blend

surrounded light, ghostly motion caught
my path. Dance on, dance long, perpetual
light, reflecting motions slowing thoughts.


Inspired by Bleak House by Charles Dickens.
