2020-12-13 – One Candle

still plunging the
murky ponds
of past
but..

each delve yields
far less than
the last,

best i find a new
crutch to
rest

my burdens on,
or stand
taller..

to see just how
much mass
these

old joints can
handle
and..

if i don’t burst
into flame..

i’ll still find shade in
the warmth of
one candle.
