Storm knocked out the power, the candles are now lit
Ice cream is going to melt, so let's make a banana split 
Bring out the board games, time to use our skills and wit
Conversations are much better, don't you agree a little bit
Let's snuggle to keep warm come over here with me and sit
Making memories by candlelight is the best we must admit.

by Cecilia Macfarlane for Russell Sivey's "By Candlelight" contest.

    This is great and so true. We are so caught up with technology that we miss out on so many potential memories. Great poem!

    Personally I love it when the power goes out that is as long as it doesn't stay out for more that a day. My fridge will hold out that long if not opened too much. I like how this almost forces the family to interact and be together like it should be. May life be as much of a blessing to you as you are to it. Huggs TLee

    Nicely done, Cecilia! "Making memories by candlelight" ... sounds like a plan to me. Where do I sign up? The way you describe it, I think I would be looking forward to those storms. Oh darn, the lights went out again, here let me light that for you. ;-) Joe
