Wishing all of my blogger friends a joyous Christmas! We are still sick and hoping the bugs die off quickly so we can start 2018 in robust health. Joy to all!
A candle to push back the darkness, but the tricky thing is
that as light comes it burns,
burns the imperfections away–ashes left behind.
Can I not have the illumination without the pain?
If I could have light without burning,
I could, but
fire doesn’t work that way.
To my mind
to my black heart
Light of the world, come.
