Heart Candles


Intersecting roads have led them here

from places sometimes sad and drear,

now to pause and look and listen for something resembling forgotten dreams

Do they remember when kindred spirit

last ventured near with candle lit,

there to shine trembling, wary light in curious wonder through their doors?

What will tomorrow and tomorrow bring

when shaken and uncertain heart strings

are gently stroked, by premonition of a dance once fitfully surrendered?

Will they venture forth upon the floor,

amongst the bones and surfeit thrones,

of kings and queens from myriad and musty corners of the past?

Or pass once more far from the fray,

avoiding pain that may hold sway

if chance be taken (not hope forsaken), that tenderness may forge a brand new day?
