Candle Light

Shared with DVerse open link night, here. This is also another “insane cinquain”.

Candle-light bright
Though tiny, flickering,
Its scent fills the room:
It fears not to darkness fight,
Hope’s return it is hastening.

It has not the brightness of days,
Yet it enough faith equips:
Lit with a quick match
Wick holds the flame always
Though the wax drips.

  1. You have a strong message here of faith and hope. We don’t need the full light of the sun; all we need is the light of the candle—just enough hope to sustain us until the sunlight reappears. And I love how you observe that the wick keeps the light steady even though the wax melts away.
