A burning candle
I simply cannot look away
it lights up the whole room
both, my mind and soul well tuned
giving the atmosphere a certain flare
its mesmerizing the air

  • 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.
    Adding to my favourites!!

    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.

    thanks for writing.

    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...

    I love this, one becomes so focused, it's like being there in the room and looking into the flame of the candle!
