I was once inspired deeply by a simple quote:
“A thousand candles can be lighted from the flame of one candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness can be spread without diminishing that of yourself.”
As I try to be the candle, and the mirror, casting out the Light I find, creating seedlings that will offer, much more light for all Mankind.
So after hearing from friend who had visited here, then went off to change her life, downsize in so many ways, and made incredible progress toward finding happiness, fulfillment, and the dreams she wants to manifest. It is truly inspirational for me and thus I wrote this poem upon reading her post.
Thank you Stephanie for being an inspiration as I watch your candle light grow brighter every time i hear from you.
The candle lit
the passion grows.
The heart that leads
is first to know.
The path you travel
the dream you weave
the place you will live
if you can believe.
These are the fires
I seek to ignite,
with images flashing
into the night.
Freedoms taste for spirit rises
as we feel our souls inspired
creating things we once did dream of
learning how they then are fired.
In the kiln of life we live
adding to the fire daily
forging out the parts and pieces,
manifesting our new freedom.
Out of trash, imagination,
dreams that lead to jubilation,
once you learn that you can form it
we will have a brand new nation.
People freed from TV bondage,
thinking of the World again,
creating something we can live with,
will happen if we share a plan.
