Often I stumble across or I am given quotes or poems which inspire and provoke thought... this blog is here to share those with you....
I shall light a candle of understanding in thine heart which shall not be put out.



I shall light.
First debts to pay and fences to mend,
Lay to rest the wounded past, foes disguised as friends.

I shall light a candle of understanding

Cease the training of impossible hedges round this life
for as fast as you sow them, serendipity’s thickets will appear
and outgrow them.

I shall light a candle of understanding in thine heart.

All things in their place then, in this many chambered heart.
For each thing a place and for HIM a place apart.

I shall light a candle of understanding in thine heart
which shall not be put out.

By the hand that lit the candle.
By the never to be extinguished flame.
By the candle-wax which wind-worried drips
into candle wings luminous and rare.
By the illumination of that candle
exit, death and fear and doubt
here love and possibility
within a lit heart shining out.
