These candles, our bodies

"These candles,
our bodies --
see how they burn.
How many hours will they last --
days, months, years?
Look at the warmth and comfort 
we can give to each other
or to anything that comes close.

One of the components of lasting art
is a spirit flame within the created
that can ignite inspiration and hope,
and survive time's ways."

-- Hafiz
