Burning bright

Jars of light

sitting patiently waiting

for you to arrive,

cheerful quiet peace awaits

a glass of wine and a friend

Music to soothe the stress away,

a hand to hold

an ear to lend

we’ve been waiting for you to come

join the evening party

of that which is life.

Let us raise a toast

laughter and singing will be had

merriment we shall surely make

this corner spot

away from the world

warm humid nights

and fireflies to see

dreams to weave and happiness abound.

Come, we are waiting here for you,

the candles are lit

the jars sit pretty

flickering welcome committee

to a new moment

in your every typical day.

sit back and relax,

the party’s just starting

with you, the guest of honor

so glad you could come.

welcome my sweet friend.

  1. I think my blood pressure went down 20 points while reading this. I don’t have a pressure cuff, but it’s possible. The images in my mind were so awesome and relaxing. I can see your bright and beautiful smile, feel your warm hug, and taste the just-cool, dry pinot noir, just from the words. Thank you.


Your words are stars and I humbly thank you for shining your light for me....
