The little things that make life great.


Small Extravagance

Letting a candle burn for no other reason
than the fact that I enjoy letting it burn
Catching it from the corner of my eye
as I read,
that shivering light grown shorter,
as page turns after page, the waste
is a comfort for me somehow,
a small extravagance
