Image for the poem Coruscation

Coruscation

 
Freedom is a funny thing
Perspective of eyes
Family lore
History

When a candle flickers
we assume
the light burns
still burns strong
itís just a light gale

Some tapers
or tea cups
sparkle
for our benefit
public assurances

Sometimes
the flicker
signals
the struggle
keepsake
keeping
the flame
alive

When the fuel
no longer combusts
too painful
to spark
Ö

it is time
to
twinkle

;;;

no longer
flickering

another
star
twinkles

is now
at
ease
