keeper of the flame,
torch bearer,
love receiver.

holds the light, tender.
A gift given
freely, with love.

Shadows fall,
night comes again.
Still, an ember glows.

She is tasked
to share the light

Often, she is a mirror,
reflecting what
she receives.

The flame doesn’t scold her,
simply keeps gleaming,
a constant.

As she gazes intent,
the light flickers,
“Come, dance with me!”

She lets her hair flow down,
dances, sings 
with abandon.
Passion engulfs her.

Her voice laughs, energized,
her breath blows the blaze,
sparks another.

She —
launcher of the flame,
torch sharer,
love giver.

To Ponder:
“Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.” – Matthew 5:15

Reflect on how you are a recipient and giver of God’s light.
