Like a decorated victors tombstone or an angel carrying the light.

The words, the lamp post, the tree, the garland, the light: all so pleasing to my eyes.

I know your pain
I see your plight
But you need more
Than merely light.

You need sunshine
On the land
Beaches full of
Soft white sand.

But you don't live
In Florida
You live up north
Where, well, duh...

You need warmth
The warmth of home
When bitter cold
Chills to the bone.

And if you find
You're deep in snow
Look for a shiny,
Golden glow -

From the lantern
On your path
Then safely home
You can laugh ...

(And laugh and laugh!)

It's late and I want to go home
I had a little drink about an hour ago

Thank goodness for lamplight.

Beautiful picture postcard.

I USED to need one of these quite a bit. Now? Not so much.

Gives "frosted glass" new meaning... or really, I suppose it's the old meaning! Beautiful.

Jacob said...

You're welcome! 'Tis prob'ly 'cause your blog always inspires me!

Splendid vignette! The scene has a wonderful feel to it, the lamp being a symbol of hope for the warmth of a homecoming.
