Candle



PADE Day 3 "Candles"

Since I was a kid, I have been told by my elders to live a life like that of a candle. A candle that sacrifices itself to give light to others; a candle that endures loss to show the right path to the lost traveler in the darkness.
Although I cannot be that candle, I do appreciate the people who try to live like a candle.



I have taken these snaps from my iPhone 4S. I simply love the shape and texture of this candle. I even love the way it casts its own shadow. Hope you guys enjoy looking at it the same way I do.

This post is my entry for the PADE conducted by “Just a mom

    1. Punit, good question. It's simply because I don't want to sacrifice anything. I am happy to help anyone as long as I don't have to let go of anything that I don't want to. I know, pretty selfish :(

  3. Love it...love the second one..And I believe we are all Candles..Start as a small flicker...glow more and more..with melting inhibitions...and glow the most when all inhibition melts away.....and finally dissolve in air....

  5. Very thought provoking indeed. I really liked the innate philosophy, though looking crude, but I too hold these views.
