The Candle is Burning Brightly

This picture was a prompt in our Reframing Collective, which is a part of Story Sessions, a beautiful online group of women writers who encourage rather than compete.  As I gazed at the picture I was inspired to write a poem.

The candle is burning brightly,

Beckoning all to see,

Bringing hope in darkness,

Safety for you and me.



The candle is burning brightly

Beckoning me to come.

It's warm inside and cozy.

Peace in this place called home.



May my life be burning brightly,

Beckoning in the night,

Pointing others to Jesus,

Who is the one true Light.
