Day 6, 30-day #candleflame challenge.

“As essence turns to ocean,/the particles glisten./

Watch how in this candleflame instant/blaze all the moments you have lived.”



She was so resonate

She could tune a fork.

You moved me

He said.

I’m glad I said.

No you don’t even know

He said.

You saved me.

What moves us

What resonates

Is personal


Tied to wonder


And subjectivity.

We collectively move

Together sometimes.

In a moment.

Making a movement

A motion

Larger than ourselves.

One word.

A post.

A phrase

A letter

A call

A look

Can change the story

Can reframe the narrative

Can save a life.

My life has been changed by

A look.

I remember everyone of those


A gift from someone else.


Deliberate goodness from a friend.

Kindness of a stranger.

You may never know when and if

Something you do or say

Will resonate

Will strike a chord

Will tune the fork.

So speak up

Speak your truth.

Stand up

For your beliefs.

And listen.

For what you say and do

Is deep, full and reverberating.


Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
