Hidden Candles

morning sun gently slid over closed eyes

a distant memory flowed past

accompanied by the ever so slight wisp of a smell

paper, parchment, ink and stylus’

fall 1979

there it is

art supplies at the university book store

calligraphy items everywhere

such a treat!

not needed for my college classes

but something deeper inside called

purchases made and headed to the dorm

inside the cubicle

looking through the pages

putting stylus to ink and then to paper

how easily the beauty and the letters appeared

how sweet the flow

like music transferred to parchment

one could get lost in this

then life took overWIN_20150406_172100.jpg

and the candle light

faded away

but for just a small moment

in the early morning light

the ink flowed freely again
