a coda of lights!

~

this

is

the last dance

of

the last act

before

the final curtain call

of

the season.

it has been quite a run of glowing performances

but

it is now time

to bid adieu,

pack up the costumes and the sets

until

we return

again next year.

~

Please,

do not be sad

~ ~ ~

miracles await us!

glow of each flame

dreaming upon dreams ~

wishing upon wishes ~

for a miracle to bring

peace and harmony to our world.

humanity may be in trouble

but miracles have been known to occur…

seven

almost a complete set…

another night, another candle

each awaits a turn

words spoken from long ago

one spark feeds a flame

a graceful glow fills the room

remembering miracles

the second night of lights

standing tall and proud

each flame reaches to the sky

solace holds my hand

night two

the drip mats were made by the boys in preschool. Jordan’s was made in 1997 – less than two months after Peyton was born.
