My morning tea  always
tastes better by candlelight
Alone in a room of my own
aware of the stillness that surrounds me
There is something about a lit candle
that makes a room come alive
All my senses become heightened
Wanderlust imaginings fill my mind
The candle flickers with hypnotic light
inviting buoyant energy
to share this esoteric space
as we merge into
secluded stillness

Posted For One Shot Wednesday  



  1. Beautifully written poem. I love the assonance in

    'Alone in a room of my own'

  2. "Chimes" was an alluring way to present an awareness...

    "Alone In A Room of My Own" left a nostalgic taste of something I hadn't ever seen... and THAT took thought, style, and wit.

    Take care,

  3. Beautiful and serene!

  4. ah nice..this feels those early morning hours...

  5. I love candles . This is lovely !

  6. This is beautiful Helena, I love the quietness and calm of early morning. A good time to think and write..Susie

  7. Helena, it reminds me of the line in My Fair Lady, it goes like this;"All I want is a room somewere.Far away from the cold night air..."
    What a beautiful poem.

  8. This is Lovely.
    It makes me want to get up and have a cup of tea myself, the quiet.
    Thank you,

  9. Aaahhhh... AWESOME!! I love how you created a magical atmosphere with your words here, Helena.. just like the little lit candle in an otherwise dark room...
    Brilliant imagery, and beautiful writing!!

  10. morning, especially the very early morning, i love!
    love the peace & quiet when i take an early morning walk when it's just me & my faithful dog Jake.
    this poem is beautifully expressed about what makes your morning special.
    thank you for sharing!

  11. I understand why you call your blog Memory Box Creations. This poem, this beautiful Morning, belongs in a frame, hanging in that special candlelit room.

  12. Belo!... Deliciosa expressão poética!
