Inspirationals IV. A Candle for My Mother

As outside inside
As it is
Beyond the door
In the abbey nave
The wind blows
Footfalls echo
From the floor
I light a candle
For my mother
It flickers
In the breeze
And then
I light another
But it goes out
When I sneeze
My solemn gesture
Hence reduced
To farce
That then reminds me
Be not seduced
Nor pine
For life goes on,
Leave false gravitas
Behind thee!
