Flame

Taper#Daily Prompt #Season 2#Attempt 92


Life tapers
Towards end
Leaving behind
All it gathered
Or believed
It’s mine
Narrowing and reaching
To self again
As candle
Melts with heat
Of its own flame
Again to be wax
Till He reframes it
To give some other shape
Once again…
To start it again
Burn and melt
Giving away
Light, heat and hope
Till it taper with rising flame
Once again!
