A single candle is lit in the window of a heart,
and an entire house is warmed.
How welcoming this home becomes
in the light of a single flame.
How joyfully the flame dances
with the music of a family celebration.
How present it becomes in the middle of the night.
How far it reverberates outside.
Each of us is the flame, the home, the family.
A single candle is lit in the window of a heart,
and our world is embroidered in Light.
An Enlightened Celebration to all!
