As the flame lit the wick of my red votive candle,
a dance emerged.
It was fascinating to watch
the gentle flame swaying from side to side.
Golden orange, yellow, with a hint of light blue colors
all moving in unison.
It was hypnotic.
Without a warning, I heard the window shades rustle
and the flame became stronger and taller showing its strength.
Immediately, I closed my eyes
and breathed in the energy of the flame
filling my soul.
