    Beautiful. Love the images of candles being lit. One of my fav things to do is take a bath and my fake candles (they go on by switch, much more safer in a small apartment environment) and turn off the lights and enjoy the bubbles. Oh I think I need to do that again.

    Awesome

    Dagmar-
    This is beauty in its purest form. I absolutely love it. Just like everyone else, I was transported to a really calm and peaceful place; nothing really mattered, just the flame. Mesmerizing and relaxing.
    Sometimes we need to stop and take the time to appreciate even the smallest things, and I am really grateful to you for sharing your poetry with us because just by reading your work, I learn to appreciate even the simplest and unnoticed things in life. As I've said, you are an asset to this site. And you continue to surprise me every time I read something from you. Keep writing :)

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

    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...

    Beautiful

    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.

    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 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!!
