Claire-ity

A Poem by JR
"

For my friend

"

My friend

 

I’ve come to the point in my life where

I realize that we’re all just candles

Straining against the blink…

 

As I sit in darkness

Humming dub

I will think of your spark

Dancing on the edge of vision

 

I will think of you

And dream in your patterned waves

Interesting play on words in the title. The name Claire means clear in French, right?
Candles straining...makes me think of how a draft can whip through and put you out for good. I guess some candles can be re-lit though.
This is a really nice tribute to your friend, with some tender images
"your spark//Dancing on the edge of vision".
The tone of this is sincere and hopeful. It's a nice read.
Thanks [for sharing] JR.
