Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Votive Candles – July 2015



votive candles
were there for us
a wonder to look at

they didn’t smell good
then – they just burn
and piss the melted

nor small or round – they
pushed themselves up
as we peeled off excesses

we sat quietly enchanted
they made great shadows
calling us up in and out

    • Don’t worry Matthew, I did a greater mess than yours, LOL… was replying to you from the app on iphone not to worry and it turned into a POST! Yaekee, had to quickly erase it. Now we are all back to normal :-). I appreciate your nice comment, thank you.


      • That’s ok Anna. Ok has to be both capitals like OK to not be underlined by the great red line of misspellingness, I am sure you don’t need to know this. I don’t have a fancy iPhone, you are blessed…
