A Juicy Poem

The eyes delight in the flavor
        of the words, and the flowing
        juice of the images creates a
        new feeling never known before.

The peeling, which is really the most
	nutritious part, need to be
	carefully removed before the
	true meaning can be digested.

A refreshing smile appears after
	eating the poetry snack which
	is short, relaxing and delicious.

Woman, You Put a Spell on Me

Woman, you put a spell on me
And there’s nothing else to see
Except for the vision of you.
Your big brown eyes aimed
Straight and pierced my soul.
Thoughts of you are all I know.
I never heard the words you said,
But your curse affects my life
In everything I do and say.
I have to have you everyday.
Your beauty is a mystery.
Where did you come from?
I saw you first in the dark,
And then you took my heart.
Woman, you put a spell on me
And there’s nothing else to see
Except for the vision of you.

Two Candles

Two cold candles, 
one slightly larger than the other,
are placed together, side by side, through the
hands of heaven.  
The flames from the
different candles ignite
 and grow taller, brighter, and sometimes
they become one unified flame.
As time continues,
the melted wax created from
the heat merges the two candles and
 the flames stay as one.
A breeze blows,
threatening the fire's effects,
but the strength of the
flame is hot enough to withstand
any threat to extinguish it.
When the candles are 
exhausted, many more sets of candles
are ignited from their everlasting fire.
