in darkness
a flicker seen
hope fills the  heart

A lit lamp flickering in the wind has always attracted me though I am not a very religious person and my better half has to force me to accompany her to temples or even to light up the lamp at home sometimes. Maybe it’s the vision it conveys of a lone fire fighting against the wind or the fire that burns within everyone to stand for what they feel is right. Many of them hardly realize or feel that fire but its there. I define that as conditional love for humanity.

  1. Color of the fire in the dark background-everyone to stand against what they feel is right….well written as well.

    When we offer Arathi to our Guru, he tells us that what we are doing is ‘burning the evil within and lighting the love in our hearts’. I like your interpretation too, of the lone fighter.
