Writing here by candlelight
Being soothed on this night
Pen shadows dance
Across the page
As the light flickers away.
~
Writing here by candlelight
Taking me back to simple delights
Silence except for pen across page
Reminds me of old notebooks
Tucked away
Writing in the dark in childhood days.
~
Writing here by candlelight
My imagination starts to take flight
Knights are fighting dragons
From the candle shadow light
A forgotten pleasure
That makes the day
Me pen paper and a cup of earl grey
Writing here now by candlelight.
~
From this I shall take away
A reminder to find a blessing each and every day
I am going to try
And hope you do too
Even if its only writing
By candlelight.
