“If one candle can light the path of peace I will provide candles to approach it from all directions” (Lord David Prosser).
This is the comment I got in my comment box Sunday morning of September 16, 2016 when I got up in the early hours of the day to blog before proceeding to Church. It came in response to my poem, A candle is enough.
It motivated me to immediately dash over to Lord David Prosser’s blog to know him better. I found that this “retired ex Local Government Officer with a horse mad wife’ has a thrilling story to tell. He is an author anyone would love to read. However,that is not what has prompted me to talk about him. What makes me talk about him now is my mind was set ablaze by his comment and I ended up with a poem: Light your candle of peace. Here it comes:
Light your candle of peace
“If one candle can light the path of peace,”
Says Lord David Prosser,
“I will provide candles
To approach it from all directions.”
One candle indeed, I say,
Can light the path of peace;
We can each be a candle of peace;
And in our own way,
Light the path of peace;
How far our light goes once it is lit
Is hard to tell;
It could go from person to person;
And before long,
It’s gone round the world.
Whoever you are,
Wherever you are,
Be a candle of peace;
Light your candle of peace;
May billions of candles of peace
In all corners of the world!
That peace we ardently seek
In the world may be ours!
Many thanks to Lord David Prosser for this poem. To him and his sweet wife, I dedicate it. You can meet this loving couple: https://barsetshirediaries.wordpress.com/
