Three Candles

On the night stand
Three candles
Wax melted and still
Warm to the touch
Remind me of the moment
Your face glowed
In the flames
From the fire between us
And the flickering cast shadows
On the walls and our bodies
You left your lighter there
Beside them so you could
Return and ignite
Me once again

The prompt is “you left your lighter” from Maria Giesbrecht @theguelphpoet on Instagram. April 27, National Poetry Month 2022.

Sacred Secret

sacred-secret

Sacred Secret

Born broken in the dark of night
Her desire, a brilliant blue fire,
To drink of the cool morning
And kiss the champagne sky.

She longed not for fools or men,
But the red-hot, velvet-soft embrace of an angel
Made her heart throb a wild rhythm
And a fever linger on her lips.
