#advent #candle #christmas

 

Creating light out of darkness

A sign of new things to come

Now that advent is underway each

Decorated candle will be

Lit bringing light to the house and as

Each candle is lit, Christmas comes closer

Three Purple And One Pink As A Catholic Symbol

Light green moments

Saturday morning, and I’m pondering the next shade of colour in fees fun foto challenge

lime green

now you say lime green to me, and my artistic thoughts go directly to the fruit bowl

lemon-lime-paint

But limes nowadays seem much darker in tone than what I’d normally associate them with….you would have to split  them open to get the colour you were looking for

But a quick scan of the kitchen cupboards soon reveals this light green colour.   In a packet of custard, or perhaps pasta or even strawberry jelly (strange but true). For the doubters it’s the one in the green packet…

lime jelly ? An acquired taste.

and outside in the garden, the trees have more of a lime green colour to them than the actual shade of a dark green limeimage.jpg

look again… and the outside of the lime is hiding in plain sight…

Silouhette

Silhouette

Some call him a shadowy figure

If you look at the wall carefully enough and

Look, you may just recognise him

He definitely has a definable shape

Of course – you would have a problem catching the real him

Unless you find the door or window that’s casting his form

Even then – he may be standing far away

The Moon casting his form on the wall

Take a look behind you – there’s nobody there – he’s

Exited the room under cover of darkness

Bubble

Bubble

bubble rising

up high in the

blue skies, floating and

bobbing about in the air

light as a feather, and bringing a smile to

excitable little faces

Parallel

Parallel

particularly important

as things go, the way the tram lines

rails are aligned

as they have to be a certain distance for the

light rapid transport to be powered by

electrical lines

leading off to the destination ahead

Lighting the dark

It glows

lighting up the darkness

for all who seek the light

colours brighten the morning sky

produced by insects that do fly

up the trees and plants around

feeding on nectar, without making a sound

to others they brighten a darkened day

but they’re happy to just fly around and play.

Candle

Radiant in the dawn of sunset

a candle lights the darkness

dim at first, but getting brighter

illuminating the building with its brothers and sisters

as power goes – it gives a torch a run for its money

not to mention the electricity grid

the fuses die ? – out comes the candles

Brilliant

Brilliant

Bright as a button

Rounded to perfection

If you look carefully at the way the

Light falls upon it you’ll see a rainbow of

Lights falling to the floor

It’s a sign of its perfect cut

And quality

Nuptials assured – a sign of love from groom

To Bride

Glaring

Glaring

 

Funny thing is this fame game,

you confidently cross the wooden stage

prepared for the task in front of you

only to be hit by that beam of light

casting a huge shadow at you

 

Its like the light

is a giant magnet

wiping clean the act

nothing left to do but perform the other routine

along with the fourteen prat-falls as backup
