it begins with a candle - lit and spiraling down into nonbeing
banking on the promise of rebirth upon the next schedule of creation
when the universe will move slowly and imperceptibly
to reposition itself for the reincarnation of a single essence

the candle is lit and a prayer is said
the focal point of motion has been chosen - it is man
man revolves and the spin is attributed to the earth
the true center is irrelevant, the standards have been set

the wick burns and the candle descends
the ritual has peaked and the spirit has long expired
it is anticipated - rebirth, recreation, reincarnation
but first the candle must allow itself to burn
