Enchantment By Candlelight

“To Glow” – Paranaque, 2010

cast your

spells

at the

stroke of

midnight

and let

the flames

flicker

and watch

the fire

dance.

 

light a

path

for helpful

sprites

and banish

the imps

who seek

to plague;

chant the

names

of elements

ruling fate:

terra

whose womb

nurtures

us all;

lux

who carries

light

and warmth;

aqua

from whom

life springs;

boreas

who whistles

breezes

who howls

tempests.

 

hearken unto

my call

accept my

offerings

and guide

me

that i

may use

my gifts

for good –

never

for ill.
