Picture was painted by Ginger Marshall

In the shadows of a charcoal print
barely visible to see
lays a distant glow
a chance meeting
by an open door.

Lost in the confusion
of the moment
breaking free
yet wondering
what I left behind.

The mystery unfolded
days later,
with a sweet gentle voice
and the anticipation of a junction.
Greeted by a warm smile
my lips sweeping against yours
with feelings of wanting more.

Words are spoken
words are written
doors are opened
and music is playing
all by a single candle light.

You may be a bit young to recall this Sis Karen, but this poem and painting brought to mind the words of a song by "The Fifth Dimension" called "Love Lines Angles and Rhymes". . .part of the lyrics are below:

Love leads the lines of love in circles and angles
Love runs deep like a tunnel with a pendulum beat
That touches the heart in many directions
Moving the mind in silent reflection
Of the lines that touch the corners and fibers
Of the feeling that keeps running inside you
Cycles of fears with the longing and tears
Lettin' out the needs and laughter of
Sunshine, love shine
Touching the fibers of the feeling inside you
Letting out the things you hide. . .

The Fifth Dimension have commented for me on this. . . I can't do any better.

The painting added a wonderful ambience to an exquisite piece of writing. I live in Missouri but my heart remains in New York.

This is beautiful and says so much. I don't believe in accidents. The mystery in the drawing, a coming together that was meant to be. So much can happen "all by a single candle light."
Reviewed by Constance Gotsch 11/8/2005
I like this. It reminds me of O Henry's The Green Door. A chance prompt leads to a chance encounter that saves a life and sparks love.
