She is
a keeper of the flame,
a torch bearer,
a love receiver.

She 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,
abundant.

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,
invites:
“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 is
a launcher of the flame,
a torch sharer,
a 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.
