a candle of burning faith,
unseen and unknown.
At night and alone you flicker to the beat of my heart.
Your starlight beams reign upon us and illuminate our darkened paths.
Tiny Starlight awaken our souls,
helps us to grow
lead us to the path of wisdom.
Just as every garden has a nest for its birds,
so do our hearts have a special place for your light.
Shine your inspiring beams like a spring rainfall
and we will pray to begin this song from the start.
I wrote this about a decade ago and when I came across it recently I thought of my visit to Villa Rockledge. A remarkable gem of a property on the California Riviera, however, one that I sensed a bit of somberness as I traipsed its grounds. Still up for grabs for a mere $30,000,000 (no that is not a typo as you can see for yourself on Zillow) it was built by the renowned developer Frank Miller of the Mission Inn in Riverside, CA for a voracious lifestyle consumer in Laguna Beach.
