light flickers, stretches spectral

light flickers; stretching spectral
and slender toward slip or aplomb

as stalk splinters, bouquet wizens
to the brink of parch and succumb.

Resignation. A theme I read of late. You think it's because the end of the year brings it? I love this image...the flame succumbed to the wind. Had it a choice against such power?

Annie, not sure if it's due to the approaching year's end or possibly, a perceived impending sea-change. either way a restart seems imminent and oh, necessary (don't you think?).

Here is to a beautiful, glimmering light into 2011!

Cheers Noxalio!
