In This Dark Place

Daily Prompt: Smoke

Alone in this dark place, I light a candle.

 

Mesmerized by the flame’s dance

as the smoke gracefully emerges

from the fire.

 

The smell of forest

comes from the wax,

takes me to a quiet place.

Silence finally fills my mind

and makes room for me to dream

hope again

in this dark place.
