When It Comes Down To It

Light the World
Originally uploaded by Greatwork.

Platitudes sound like a broken bell

fall against our ears discordant

but how do we measure this

the quality of a life

burning through the wax

clinging to the wick

the liquid flame destroying in its light

into the bottom of the glass

knowing only

because we are observing

it is not our turn yet

yet who would douse the flame

well placed tears moving momentous

over this our mourning hour

what sum has been erased

burned to the quick as the last words

seal our prayers this time
