My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

July 31, 2010 “a happy post for both Cindys”


Two lovers draped in the flickering glow
of two tealights, dimly dancing slow
upon the ebbing walls, across the flowing floor
like fairy gods playing at the shadowed door
the lovers lie in lover’s eye
lost in the fluttering flame
melted and melded
til two lights become same
and brighter still their light
burning jealous green and passion red
each for their love’s loving through the night
two tiny tealights
lighting lover’s love’s way
til fairy gods vanish
and night’s become day

  2. I’m so pleased you liked it, Cindy:) I forgot the dedication and came back to add it, and your comment was posted. This one is for you, Cindy South, and for Cindy North…two of my favorites 🙂

    You have an amazing knack for giving life to little things. I have dozens of tea lights sitting in a dark closet. Now of course I am going to have to dig them out and light them to see if I can’t spot the fairy gods. If I am considered one of the Cindy’s I thank you kindly for thinking of me.

  8. green envies and red passions — very lovely!
    “like fairy gods playing at the shadowed door” — sounded musical as I was reading it aloud 😦
    I like the style you’ve employed here…
    Good work here, Tracy.. Kudos 🙂
