Holding Light

This is no firefly cupped in my hands
No chemical fusion releasing luminescence

This is no candle bent to the wind
No struggling wisp from burning wick

This is no flick of battery-fueled flash
No lame LED tea-light trick faking a faint flame

This is no brash glow-in-the-dark paint
No Rave infused neon trance-dance ‘till I ain’t

This is no hewn staff mage-fire spell or red burning coal
No sun’s face mirrored in the dragon-eye moon
Nor starlight reflection in watery glass well
No, my friend
This is soul-magic
A light from within
A prayer
For you

Deep and revealing about your character. The imagery is well done, poignantly placed, and creates a mood of not only light, but a way to produce it.

It made me think of a special friend
How we miss him so
But we all know
To never let him go
As we know
His light still shines from within


Your poetry is like a melody that creates a fountain of light from within. Thank you for the inspiration, and reminder.

Thank you, Starwise! Deeply appreciated.
Holding Light is a very real thing for me... I have a strange sense that it does actually connect to the light within others, and so we send little beacons out to those we miss, like lighthouses to the ships on stormy seas, in hopes they find their way Home...

peace to you,
AB
