A Warmly Lit Flame

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.


I bask in the glow of a newly lit flame deep within my heart.

The flame casts a reflection, a mirrored impression upon my sight.

I’m confused as the reflection is cold, but loving, caring, but truthful.

Falling opposite my sight the reflection needs nothing from me, it has all it needs from truth.

I find myself lacking truth.

The mirror of truth reflects into my mind nudging me to learn.

Revealing truth of what hides inside intuition, the truth of what will heal me if only I allow it to permeate my heart.

Thank you for that, Brenda. The heart is funny that way.

We don't want to let our hearts see what out intuition already knows.

Nice writing.
