There is a candle that burns deep
in the heart of the artist, a flame of living spirit.
It speaks through timeless ages of truths far into a soul.
The flames fluttering dance reveals reflections in mirrors,
only of emptiness, no light seen to unfold.
Pushing through the darkness the hand brings forth a light,
To release all the tears of time, for those who may see.
Slowly it tells it’s tale to the heart that listens,
Blind, oh so blind as it is right before me.
Pushing and twisting as to escape its silent cries,
smooth and soft, caressing the whole.
There is a candle that burns deep in the heart of an artist.
The painters canvas holding secrets untold.
No flame comes from the candles reflection, unfulfilled in its
to touch the mirror of the soul.
