Manifestations by Jen Curry

The aroma
from a red
apple crisp candle
lit with
a translucent,
amber fire stick.
Finds a smooth
thumb surface
to flick upon
it’s jagged edges,
catching the
white waxed wick
to transform
and arise into a
yellow orange
red flame,
that peaks
then dances.
Giving off heat
Glowing above one
round shallow
marble holder.
Precisely placed
on layers of
kitchen tablecloths.
all manifestations
of the mind.
