A Candle Flickers (but does not go out)

A lamp is drawn from under a bed
the world groans it’s disapproval
as it is placed upon a stand
and illuminates the room
Peace and calm resume
not before he singes his hand
A full moon nests upon a tree
at least that’s how it seems to me
strike a match
light a fuse
who will take the bumpy road with me?
they await the nitro to clear rocks to build a bridge
Headlights blare into a rainy night
finally heading home
for the first time
read the directions right
Exhausted, relieved, lost in thought
found a Way through the dark
She left the floodlights on
i sit outside in the driveway
meditate on the Blessings
You’ve showered upon me
Please forgive me for wondering
if this is just a dream?
i never saw this coming
it is beyond my wildest imagination
“No one knows the hour”
It’s been a long week,
I really must go inside to bathe
but not before…
taking a moment to give thanks and praise
taking nothing for granted
under moonlight’s glow
basking in a SON shower

Anthony Gomez, Moncks Corner, South Carolina

Anthony often comes up with stream of consciousness as he does his rounds with his transport rig. This faithful poet is an OBSERVER in the keenest sense, and uncompromising.
