first autumn morning
the mirror I stare into
shows my father's face.

thinking of folks back home
he stops to buy postcards

...

lightning one candle
with another candle
an evening in spring

sing alleluia cantors
Easter vigil has ended

silent steps -
one more candle illuminates
the old chapel

she adjusts her head scarf
secured now with a hairpin

__ The sun, each day's candle; smiles, in this Cinquain. _m

at dawn
this days candle
newly lights every step
and as shadows follow each foot
I do

This is an interesting exercise. I know that feeling, seeing father's face in the mirror.

I like all your returns, Gillan. The show the concerns and hint of the character of the players. The Father clearly is thinking of the family, wishing to give them assurance.
