The Flame

The Moth to the Flame.
Thanks Nonneljohn and dollarphotoclub!

Drawn irrepressibly to the Light

Flying feverishly towards Your sun

Regardless of knowing I will be undone

Keeping Your will firmly in my sight


May I give my insignificant life for Thee

Burn away the veils that block progress

Soul finally released and let forever loose

In the paradise of Love I will at last be set free


Cannot rest till, with my Creator I do reunite

There is no spot on Earth to call my place

Passionately wandering to find the true Grace

Will my life be accepted and my wrongs made right?

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
