Carpe Diem Special #107, Words said by Francis of Assisi

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a nice day we had today (Sunday, September 14th). My youngest daughter and her boyfriend and Myron (our youngest grandson) came visiting us. I enjoyed it a lot and ofcourse had to 'shoot' photo's of Myron. He's almost 6 months now and has always a smile on his face ... it's really a joy to see him.

Today we have our second quote by Francis of Assisi for your inspiration. Here it is:

[...] "All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.” [...]

As I read this quote a haiku by Yosa Buson came in mind directly ... it's a nice haiku and I have here a "modern" translation:

the light of a candle
is transferred to another candle—
spring twilight
