Quiet Moments

Spicy scent of burning candles

Soothing shades of amber

Shadows dancing on the mantle

Formless thoughts meander-ing through

Quiet moments alone with you

 

Glowing objects in the dark

A pen, a lamp, your picture

The fireplace alive with sparks

Reflecting where the fixtures show through

Quiet moments alone with you

 

Quiet moments still the night - spaces without time

Places where there are no words to rhyme

 

Charcoal embers of the oak

Crackling from the silence

Burned out candle’s drifting smoke

It spirals as it rises into

Quiet moments alone with you
