Where Frozen Embers Still Burn--By Dr. Upma A. Sharma--India

Where Frozen Embers Still Burn

Meeting you in life was an absolute delight,
Hearts rhymed perfect and eyes were bright,
Glow of a red blush on my face,
With your every blazing fiery embrace,

When souls took a far off flight,
There was a beauty even in the murky sight,
A tender heartache and you were there,
Those days certainly are lost somewhere,

Shunning the present and living in past,
Misery that would move the most obdurate heart,
No mold can shape as I quiver molten,
Memories of best times are frigid frozen,

Illusions of your breath every moment,
Diving deep into heart, flowing torrent,
Red running in my veins has turned auburn,
Frozen embers in my heart still slowly burn !

Passion for poetry can turn anyone crazy, Dr. Upma A. Sharma has proved this so well. She finds time from her busy schedule to satiate her appetite for words, words that rhyme with her heart. She feels that nothing in this world happens without a reason and so is poetry. This indeed is a purposeful expression of emotions and thoughts that are well oxygenated before putting them into circulation, and positive words certainly are a way to serenity.

  1. Dear Dr. Upma,

    Let me be the first of many to welcome you to Whispers!

    Your poem displays many emotions, from the joy of having a loved one near to us to the pain of letting go. It is often hard to move forward after we've lost someone this way and many readers will relate to this message. I love the imagery, especially the "red running" veins that have turned auburn.

    Beautifully written, dear!

    Love and blessings,
    Carolyn
