As a Wick Does


There is nourishment like bread
that feeds one part of your life,
nourishment like light for another.

There are many rules about restraint
with the former, but only one rule
for the latter. Never be satisfied.

Eat and drink the soul substance
as a wick does with the oil it soaks in.
Give light to the company.

loved this ...a wick does with the oil it soaks in--it is the reason I am always reading, taking photos and trying to put it all into words-never be satisfied..

Love this, I too, am never satisfied.

Always seeking for the perfect alchemy of all of me. Ooohhh

wait a minute

alchemy sounds like "all of me."

We are what we eat. If we repeatedly feed ourselves with dissatisfaction, anger, and bitterness then that's what shines from us. If we repeatedly feed ourselves with beauty, light, hope, and kindness, then that's what will shine out. Choose your diet carefully.
