One Candle

Words said by Francis of Assisi

Chèvrefeuille gives us this challenge:  
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.” [...]

A modern translation of a haiqu from Buson:

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

One Candle

heartless evil kills
hiding beneath darkness mask
candle hope must shine
