I fell back into memory of staring at the flame of a candle - it IS mesmerising and so very peaceful. Its strange how something so simplistic can hold our focus and Entrance us so completely.
This is such a beautiful poem. Such great imagery.

I love candles, it reminds me of the days when there power went off and my mom would bring out the candles and lighted them during the night. I could stare for hours and I like the warmness and gentleness that the candles give.
I immediately imagined myself sitting on a pillow in a dark room with a single burning candle in the middle.
A very peaceful poem with simple beauty.

Another simple, yet beautiful poem, Dagmar. Similar to your case with writing long poems, I can never write short ones. I envy you for that...
This imagery is so beautiful - I can imagine sitting in the room with you as I read this. I can imagine that trance like feeling you get as you watch the flame jump back and forth, or as it is standing still straight up in the air...beautiful. I have always been fascinated with fire :) I like watching it dance...
