Ernest says:
I was amazed to see this new form and tried out a poem which captures the essence of my new poetry book Two Candles (coming out 1st June in Australia).

You'll be hearing more about Ernest' new book later in June. Now, his poem!---JGR

THE LIGHT FROM TWO CANDLES

When you place two candles side by side
The room is brighter and hope abounds
Shadows of uncertainty leave silently
Now there is another soothing presence
Enjoy the new light and new hope in your life

Enjoy the new light and new hope in your life
Now there is another soothing presence
Shadows of uncertainty leave silently
The room is brighter and hope abounds
When you place two candles side by side

  1. This poem brilliantly reflects how I see Karim in the world. He is a quiet force, like a candle, yet doubling the impact of the light of those around him. I predict only great things for him.
