Vanilla Candle (Etheree)

by Maple Tree   Jun 27, 2012

are the
candle of
a miracle that
takes my sweet breath away
each and every day you smile,
casting my darkness within pools
of vanilla sorrow that will fade
when the flame flickers, and the moon sings hope

    I just realised I haven't commented on your work for quite a while lol, sorry about that :(
    But I do read your poems and you never fail to captivate me. I love this piece.
    Perhaps I am a little too biased with the vanilla. I love vanilla, almost as much as I love winter and rain :P

    Anyway, enough about me lol. I have to say that you write so elegantly. I love how you mix concrete and abstract imagery, and it totally benefits your poems. There is always a sort of nature theme in your writes and I am fond of that.
    I can also feel a little bit (or a lot, perhaps) of love here. It may be un/consciously written for/to your husband. Either way, I love that!
    You really took this form in your hands and wrote something so amazing. I also hope to see this on the front page.
    Beautiful :)

    There is not one poem that I've read of yours that I have not loved. Each one of them is so full of emotion and just so damn beautiful. There's nothing I can ever say to ever give any of your poems justice, lol. Your words flow so nice and are so majestic. Okay, I need to stop gushing about how much of an amazing writer you are, hahaha.

    Anyway, I agree with Liz... I love how the poem looks like a candle with a flame... I'm not sure if you done that on purpose of if that is the shape of the form?

    Wonderful, as always.

    I love how the poem looks like a little flame flickering on a candle. Oh so beautiful.

    I know that we were talking about candles yesterday and you were saying that you loved Vanilla. Seeing this poem made me think of that.

    You're always an inspiration to myself and I know others on here. I completely adore your writes and this is beautiful too. It makes me warm inside thinking about how strong you are and how strong your love is.

    Awesome write hun
