Flame of love

at last she broke the silence
since born she was a crying baby girl
from the time immemorial
she carried forward her sorrows

from the insecuritiy of womanhood
many cinders inside the hearth
mind was covered in the ashes
while keeping the fire burning
letting smoke and fumes often off her chest

time paraded brfore her vision
in several, a baby, a teenage girl, a young lady
woman, a lover, a grand daughter wife, mother, an employer, an employee, grandma, greatgrandma

all these time she was billowing
flushing out smoke
from the sacrificial hearth
got reincarnated
flooding her lava of womanhood
into the ground of grace

cooling her anger she created pure motherly springs
became mother of all
keeping the flame of love burning inside
as wick of time
