    An Unfrozen Heart

    Inflexible, intractable, even adamantine
    is an ice-chiseled heart’s refrigerated sunshine,
    chilling its warmth to freeze its rays
    to block Love’s penetrating singeing blaze.

    If gloom within such heart does loom
    as an unlived mansion with unlit rooms,
    then one ray of Love’s illumined heat
    will unleash hot breaths of Life’s light beat
    deicing, defrosting floors and doors
    of this mansion’s wind frozen corridors.


    Then gloom can’t rest in Life’s light heart.
    There’s no room left from end to start.
    For the Heart now yearns for light displays
    of Love’s penetrating singeing blaze.

          fasteel - Perhaps every heart is a mansion with a room occupied by Hope, another with Hate, one with Beauty and others with Jealousy, Sympathy, Honor and Duty etc. They can all half exist in a heart of dark and cold. But it takes Love to turn the lights on and melt the frozen corridors and maybe let others know that this mansion and all that lives in it are alive. So when you come a knockin’, somebody will be home. Just wipe your feet before entering. Mighty glad you could spend a spell fasteel. Namyh

            RLW - I wanted the imagery to project cascades of water from the melted ice flowing down stairs, making waterfalls over banisters, rushing and bursting through once locked doors and purifying a heart in its path. I'm pert proud you were there for the defrosting. Namyh
