Light a Candle


Matthew at Normal Happenings challenges us with Daily Inklings:
“What is a social custom considered acceptable you think should be unacceptable? What about the reverse — an unacceptable social custom you think should be acceptable?”


Light a candle for
the blessing of viruses
Spread in winter’s chill

Light a candle for
the blessing of germ-fed
Hearts that do not stop

Light a candle for
the blessing of hands that do
Not cover these sins

Light a candle,
Oh! Light a candle!

This also marks Day 4 of my week-long Ninny-Rhino.

  1. Jeeze, had to look up Ninny Rhino, LOL! I like the image of the blessing of the germs, sure, we ritualize blessing of other organisms, why be bigoted?
