In a Single Night

A single candle
Is set in the middle of
A still, dark, silent night,
Creating a halo of blurry light
Around a single flame.

A single breath of wind
Carries away an ember,
Feeding, nurturing, keeping it alive,
Until it lands upon
A single dry branch.

A single ember
Alights the dry branch,
Setting flickering, burning it bright,
Placing in the dark night
A single bright sun.

A single CROAK
Sounds so very near
Joining, singing, making a
Symphony of sounds in
The single silent night.

A single smile
Shows upon a wonder-filled faced,
Splitting, curving, playing
Upon the face of
A single Me.

The ending line of his one made me smile. And I quite felt like giggling. It is silly but in a good, fun way. Once again your words create a picture of displays for all to see. I cannot wait to read the rest of your work.
