candle conundrum ....

i am slowly and surely moving back into art mode .... as opposed to mommy mode, moving mode, unpacking mode, summer mode, tennis mode, laundry mode, daydream mode .... you get the idea .... 

my favorite flickr group is the deadline painting group ... there is a small group of us who paint on a topic each month .... the deadline is the last friday of the month .... and tomorrow? it's august ... and we have our new topic .... and it is the hardest one EVER .... really .... EVER ... say that emphatically ... EVER .... 
we are painting a poem!

Candle lover

You inhabit me
in your rejection
as a burned out candle
stays in the room
I breathe you in
unknowingly
bound together
in separation.

... i'm so out of my groove with painting, i'm not even sure how to go about it ... but ... i have a whole month to fret and think and daydream and dither over  it .... 

what are you fretting and thinking and daydreaming and dithering about?

p.s.... got that groovy candle photo at freefoto.com  ....

i'm a poet who usually can read someone elese's work and 'see it' in my mind, but not this one. good luck!

what i know of you, i see lots of orange...maybe a tricky trail of smoke from a wick?
