Advent...

 

Gathering in light

Meeting in hope

Each day of the sun

A new aspiration

 

Yule Fire Carries Hope Forward

Yule...

Bundled against the cold

Seeking the flame

Past hope ignites

The light of the future

Chanukah...

 

Smothered in darkness

The coals of the heart prevail

A hungry flame

Endures

The Menorah Symbolizes Rededication

Kwanzaa...

 

Ripped from the hearth

Tossed out to sea

A doused ember flares

Seven hopes reborn

The Kinara’s 7 Candles Symbolize Principles of Growth

Blow On The Coals Of The Heart...

A single flame...

The light of the eternal

Blazes through minds

Shines through souls

And warms the heart

Better to light a single candle than curse the darkness...

The complete poem...

I am presenting my complete poem here because I realize it may be a little difficult to track among the pictures.  I hope you enjoy it!

Seven hopes reborn

 The light of the eternal

Blazes through minds

Shines through souls

And warms the heart
