“Frozen Memories”,

Lothlorien Poetry Journal, Volume 16 in 2022

The region of my heart
where memories lay frozen and preserved
in silence
is stirred again...

Stirred and abuzz with a dynamic gush of memories.

As the snow of bitterness melts
in the spring of remembrance,
The dew of regeneration falls
like the grace of dawn,
like the bliss of ambrosia,
and moistens the orbs of my heart.

Memories like shrunken peas defrost-
They stutter, stagger and leave
the canvas of my heart
through the door left ajar.
The dark shades of bitterness
are transformed into
the shining hues of mercy.

When I bid them goodbye
through the window of my soul,
I realise -

The hardness of my karma had preserved them.
Now, the karmic heat melts and burns them -
cleansing my heart and releasing my soul from bondage past.
