A Candle

April 28, 2010
By , Loveland, OH
in the dim
the darkness,
to back off.
of beeswax
and smoke.
The smell and the light bring cheer to all.
Sitting and reading by the candlelight.
Moving in to a new realm of magic and mystery,
can happen and sometimes
Where I can be a mage,
a bard,
a knight.
But when things
get to
scary I can always come home to my candle.
