Hey Ben, very Artistic, and, Masterful! As I read, these thoughts entered my head: I see the mysteries of God, the infinite gap between light, and, darkness, as written;
There lies a sad place between light and nowhere, great line. Roses by design, this requires a "Designer!". Though flames don't, and flowers don't, between them care, yes, the whole Creation declares the Glory of God, but, care arrived in Him becoming one of us! Great piece, added to my favorites!
Dude this was enchanting... the fact you used roses and candlelight made this so Spanish along with the form I have to admit I've seen them bit I believe I've never wrote one ... this just shows your artistic talent and imagination to think of things outside the box .. lovely piece
