A Candle in the Wind


A candle sputters in the wind

Brisk chilling air intrudes

The flame darts left, darts right

Searching for an escape


Flickering angrily at the disturbance

No movement is tolerated

Look only, look deeply

Destiny is waiting


Bursting forth is the answer

The flame cleanses and heals

But carefully, gently

It can also destroy


Inhale once more, yet again

The air is purified and clean

The flame is a symbol

That sputters in the wind.
