Sparkling Delight

Like the sea breeze

she came

whooshing in

Carried by the wind

spreading love

to the unloved

Joy and happiness

to every soul

Desolation melted

like liquefying candles

Yet, leaving the sparkle

of the candles’ radiance

In everyone’s eyes

illuminating them

like true diamonds

  1. Welcome to dVerse! So glad you posted. Love this — especially the joy within your words. Would that more folks could “whoosh” in carrying joy and ridding the world of sadness and desolation. The candle metaphor works perfectly! The light flickering, sparkling as the wax (desolation/sadness) melts. Well done!

    1. Thank you 🙂 It’s actually a tribute to any individual who brings such warmth to anyone’s life. Maybe I should have put that down too! 😀 Everyone wants to know and meet her and I do too!


    1. Thank you, Freya 🙂 Haha, everyone wants to! So do I, for that matter 🙂 I just wrote it to portray anyone and everyone who manages to bring such beauty and sparkle in someone’s eyes 🙂


    1. Yay! Thank you 🙂 All this positive feedback is sending me to the clouds 😀 I’m so glad the poem worked well. I wish I knew who she was too. I definitely would love to meet such an inspiring soul but the truth is I just wrote the piece. Haha!
      Maybe, everyone has a she or he in their lives who brings in such sparkling delight and I just wrote about them 😉

  2. Hi NJ,
    I know Ronovan and Jacqueline.
    I love your graphic header. I am interested in photography. I like the pattern of the candles repeating.
    I met you at Jacqueline’s party. Maybe you can check out my blog if you need a blogging tip or two. That’s what I write about.

      1. Hi NJ,
        I just noticed your cute avatar. It looks like Charlie Brown. I love Charlie Brown and Snoopy and read the comics for many years when I was younger.
        Thanks for saying you’ll hop over. I will look forward to your visit.

      2. Hi, Janice
        Yes, it is Charlie Brown and Snoopy and they are sitting by a lake and there’s a lovely quote by them. Here it is:-
        Charlie: Some day, we will all die, Snoopy!
        Snoopy: True, but on all the other days, we will not.

        It is so simple and so true 🙂
