In Response to Poetry Palace Thursday Poets’ Rally Week 52 (Sept. 22-Sept. 28, 2011)

sometimes with candles
sometimes without light

always with heat hot feet
iced treat, a listless retreat
pearly drops upon the brow
silent swish of the date palm fan
resigned plight helpless forlorn
Silent Night, stars so bright

Absence of Light creates
awareness of sight
raises the sound of silence within
no words spoken yet wisdom begins
the break in the power makes
everything dark-
beyond our reach as all is still
nothing at will sweat drops fill
as the tears of the candle slide
and collide, Life slips over
another step, Yes, its summer,
slow hot summer pushing all in,
sleepless slumber

Oh, lets try to harness the power
or try to remember happily
ever after-The forgetful hour
