Candle of Beauty


Outer beauty is the flame
mesmerizing, bright, glowing
hypnotically drawing us in.
But, it flickers and wavers
disappearing like a whisper.

Inner beauty is the candle
that gives the flame life
providing it with strength
to deliver light and warmth
to those within its sphere.

To eventually melt
into a glistening pool
only to be reshaped and molded
back to its original form
in order to pass on the flame.

From my book:
