on the credenza
birthday cake still in the box
first birthday party

flickering shadows –
the images of ancestors
cast by candle light

lighted by a candle
ancestors past and present
in whispered prayer

  1. Your twist in the second stanza caught my attention too…great creative initiative! The overall troiku creates beautiful images. For me starting with a birthday cake almost implies candles so there is candlelight right from the beginning.
