One candle

Just one

Wafting the fragrance of

Spring apples throughout the room

One candle

Just one

With three wicks

Three identical flames

Burning in tender synchronicity

Harmoniously focused

Singular purpose

One candle

Just one

With three identical flames

Now cloven into multiple

Tongues of fire

Dancing, joyous, spreading

Light, love, beauty

Sweet bouquet to savor
