All-consuming are these
Murky, long winter evenings
Becoming mood changers,
Impeding hours spent in daylight –
Except there is a means to
Navigate through the blackness…
Candles! Let them emerge from hiding;
Entertain their glow and coziness.

Thank you for stopping by
and stay warm!

    1. Aww, thank you, Balroop. We try to make the most of them with cozy fires and glowing candles. And we look forward to the long late summer nights, too, but with those come fire season. So, no rushing the days by. πŸ₯°πŸ•―

  1. Ahh …, Lauren, I am a great believer in candles too and the atmosphere
    they bring. So it has been through the ages.
    Imagine all the writers who sat by candle light and wrote big manuscripts or poems.
    For getting together they create just the right ambience.


    1. I can just imagine those writers penning their masterpieces by candlelight, Miriam. We’ve always loved candles for all occasions and now our adult children do, too. πŸ™‚ The ambience the glow creates, along with the crackling fire, is relaxing and tranquil. I appreciate your comment and enjoy the glow. πŸ’—πŸ•―

  2. I’m going to light some (real) candles in your honor tonight, Lauren. I do have some of those (not real) candles that turn on by themselves (5 p.m. to 11 p.m.) with an invisible timer. Those are nice, but nothing like the real thing. Stay cozy in your rainy weather – so glad it’s finally going to be rainy in the Bay area, and snowy up at Tahoe!!

    1. That’s wonderful, Pam! Enjoy those real candles! We light them all winter long for all occasions because the ambience is so cozy and tranquil. We’re happy the rain is finally arriving too as we’re in dire need. Stay warm and safe. πŸ’—πŸ•―

    1. Thanks, Marina! The candles and fireplace sure make the winter much more enjoyable. πŸ™‚
      Have a good week ahead, too, dear friend. Hugs! πŸ’—πŸ•―πŸ’—πŸ•―πŸ’—πŸ•―

    1. Thanks, Mark! I’m glad you know the appeal of candles, too, and the ambience they create. We’ll be lighting some tonight and so glad it’s Friday. Have a good evening!

I appreciate your thoughts!
