|there would be no darkness without light to dim & luminate shadows veils...Ahhhh but then there would be no light without darkness' shroud to luminate & dim the lights reflective glow
Life is a wonderful blessing no matter how dark the veil for it is in the darkest hour we sometimes see the light of all importance
Wonderful Poetry Georg....and very inspirational
and when the candle's wick reaches the center perhaps it is then the two merge into one flame?

|I have always loved the analogy of a candle burning at both ends.
Probably shouldn't admit it, but I pretty much live my life that way.
Burn too much midnight oil, for sure. Or should I say candle wax?
Thank you for sharing this wise and thought-provoking piece. I especially admire "reflected in old misty mirrors" and "bouquet of
darkness." Peace! Phyllis

|So reflective that it makes us all stop and ponder our own candles and the glow that they may give off or snuff out to leave us and ours in darkness...weighty stuff here Georg

|A candle burning at two ends...the way many of us feel! Yet...I believe there is an absence of shadows when there is that much light, only obstacles cause the shadows in our lives.

|This poem has a powerful message about life! This is filled with wisdom! My favorite part of the poem is when you wrote, "Man crawls around the world with the shame of have been reflected in old misty mirrors. This is true, as so many times we can get lost in our lives. We try to find our way, but the "mirror", can be cloudy or misty. To me, the mirror is our own eyes, or it can be our heart. Stop into my den sometime. I would love to hear how you feel about my work.|

|Georg - A dark poem, profound, of the human situation " a candle burning at two ends." Especially liked the lines:
excruciating pain of not to be
on a long life with many errors
and a hole on the ground for him.
“no blinding point of bright light,
a bouquet of darkness, you see?”
then, a candle burning at two ends
represent what your life has been. - David

|This is definetely from the dark side, shadow or not, your candle shines a great everlasting light, and is even burning at both ends longer than most, no comment, Anyway while you're in that mood, you should get a hold of Keith, he appreciates the dark, but you might scare the hell out of him. I would advice, you stay away from that coors stuff, it can be mind altering, you might start speaking in tongues that few understand, but all levity aside, don't worry about darkness, they'll be giving you a candle up there, to light your way, as you have for so many down here. Blessings Friend!|
