Candlelight Prayer

In awe of the candle, 

to watch the flame flicker an aura
around and within, 
asking our Maker to whet our sense
of hope, to ease our fragility, 
to soothe our souls with solemnity,
grant us clarity of spirit 
with gratitude heartened in prayer

The candle lowers, yet hovers

aglow around and within 
to lighten the cradle of once 
that glows with the hopes of now, 
to aspire us with the breath 
of fresh sunrises and easy sunsets, 
and when the candle takes its rest, 

we softly say. "Amen"
