No Light

This would be my 2nd entry for Magpie Tales #34 this week.  I hope you enjoy this short poem.



Magpie Tales

Ah, but what a spark would ignite,
The oil fills your bowels this night,
No wick to reach the oil so slight,
Alas, with this there is no light.

Well observed;
well worded: bringing light where there was none.

Thank you all for stopping by and taking time to comment. Yes this was a short poem, but fitting I thought as to the wick-less lantern.

@ Carrie Thank you, I'm glad you are enjoying my endeavor. I am fairly new to this process, but it has been an exciting journey so far.
