Hearts Giving~Writing 201 Day 2

Gifts from the heart.
Gifts from the heart.

The candle weeps away its life giving light

I am praying to be as the candle

My days, like the wax spent serving Thee

Eagerly burning away my veils in time

The Assignment:

To write an Acrostic using simile about a gift or gifts. I’m not happy with my similes but I hope you enjoy! ❤


Published by: writersdream9

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.

  1. This poem of yours is actually pretty profound. The message could be read several ways. Candles,light, bright,snuffed out. Very good analogies. You’re a gem.Carol. and I truly mean that.

      1. It spoke to Me. Your writings are on my wavelength. Not everyone who writes,manages to speak to Me like that. I love poetry that’s sincere,truthful and descriptive. I suppose that’s the same kind of people I like

  2. How very lovely! Wonderful flow! (I do wonder if you meant to use “its” (possessive) rather than “it’s” (it is). I also quite appreciate the message of you poem. Thank you!
