Ruby Tuesday: The Candle's Glow

Just a candle in a lonely nook ...

A feeble light

In the encroaching darkness -

 Offering hope,

As it glows through the night.

For more Ruby Tuesday posts visit Mary at Work of the Poet.


  1. It does cast a warm glow in the cold gray of the nook.

  2. Beautiful words and image. I love the contrasts of warm and cool, light and dark, rough and smooth.

  3. So beautiful Loree!! Gorgeous..peaceful and mysterious!! Awesome post!

  4. In a shallow niche,
    a single candle’s glowing
    beckons me to joy.

    The Other Way (my Ruby Tuesday)

  8. Wonderful photo Loree! Love the contrast between the black & white and the added pop of color from the candle and warmth of it.

  9. Beautiful poetry. Looks like maybe a grotto in a church or mission?
