Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe-Thursday is sponsored by the letter C.  I have made candles for several years, and it is really fun.  I want to make the move from petroleum-based wax candles to soy-based candles.

Candlelight dances shadows on the wall.

Magical, mystical, marvelous.

Feeding faint light to my imagination,

I see unicorns dancing in the flames

and smoky ghosts whisper in my ear.

  1. Lovely poem. The imagery is perfect. I’ve always wanted to try making candles but I look at all the supplies and just throw up my hands and buy one!

    Thanks for your beautiful way with words. I always love coming here for Alphabe-Thursday.


  2. I have never made a candle, but I am a big candle-lover. In fact, my husband is appalled that I have a huge cupboard filled with them.

    I can’t resist a new color or fragrance…


  3. I used to make candles and it was great fun. Now I buy them…lots and lots of them, especially this time of year. I love the way candles make my house look, especially at this time of year.

    Let us know how the soy candle making goes? Maybe I’ll try my hand at it again…

    cute “c” post!

  4. why did I forget candles in my blog I love them and have loads but never made them. Would love to learn as I have lots of empty jars from old ones to fill again

  5. Well captured. I can see everything cast in candlelight and smell a faint cinnamon scent.

    There’s a drawing on my Wed post you might enjoy.

  6. Candles are so calm and peaceful. I am so glad I came over. I hope you join me too. I don’t think I know any women who don’t like candles! They keep you warm and light your way. They smell wonderful or just add some ambiance to your romantic dinner for two! Thanks for sharing. Anne
