MY LIGHT IN THIS FLAMES

I light three candles every night.

One for the brain.
One for the heart.
One for the soul.

Each time they burn differently.

I turn them off before I go to sleep.

They are funny, their worn length is different.
They seem to chase each other or to expect, they are never the same.

I think it is for the small air currents, for the drafts that come in through the cracks of life.

I always turn them on, every night, no matter which of the three is slower, what matters is knowing that they are there, knowing that I can turn them on and then blow on them.

I light three candles every night.

One for thinking.
One for not doing it.
One to dream.

And I can blow on it before I go to sleep.

    I try to burn sage by the lake, every Sunday. I put names of people needing prayers and the things in our world needing prayers. One of my Ojibwa customs, I kept. I liked the video.
