Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Lighting Up the Night

My candle burns at both ends
it will not last the night
but ah, my foes, and oh, my friends
it gives a lovely light
Edna St Vincent Millay 
Give me just a little more light to see
what needs there are around me

Bring the candle closer so that I do not miss

the tear that must be wiped
the cheek that must be kissed

Bring the candle a little bit closer 

so that before the dark sets in

I may give all the light I can
and that's poetiquejustis
