The New Kind

October 20, 2019








A candle,

enkindling another candle,

and another candle


Alight day and night,

flickering in simplicity and humility,

always bright even

when gray pervades the blue sky


An art–a masterpiece–

of inner peace,

of joy,

of hat—

ever thankful for all of that


Painted on a canvass in umber,

in tan and tanner,

in beige and beiger,

in russet and pink,

where the brightest

are glistening


As day and night crescents

beam

in soft,

supple,

rosy pairs

glowing from the goodness

permeating inside


Where nice

and happy thoughts

in purple reside,

in the household

of hope and faith

where thankfulness

is

the new kind.
