  1. Alayna

    On a table by the front door sits a low, squat white candle. Flames bright enough to illuminate a circle around it reveal patches of a cream colored wall, a deep moss green carpet, and a small glint of a golden door handle as the flickering light passes over it. At a mere four or five inches tall, it is at least that wide again, and releases a warm French vanilla scent into the front room of the quaint house, something reminiscent of cookies baking in the oven. Upon closer inspection, one can see little indents with swirls and loops inside of them; fingerprints, where one or perhaps two small children have pressed their fingers into the wax while it was warm and thus left their images behind.
    The candle itself is a simple generic, store-bought candle, but once it enters the home and is lit for the first time, it becomes a home symbol. The flame isn’t high enough to let out any real warmth, but the room feels warmer because of its homeliness, the light flickering cozily, the smell wrapping the room’s occupants in soft vanilla that makes everyone relax. It is more then enough proof of a simple store bought item bringing comfort to a room full of people, a small tranquil area. For the moment, with the ambience in the room and the lull in traffic, it feels like a little bubble of time, perfectly sealed with a vanilla kiss.
