I look into the heart of the amber, exposed to all
A brief moment in the past, perfect as the day it was formed
Stale tears on cheeks carry the code of a life lived in full

Inspired by Debbie G's "Cling - Sijo

    I really LIKE it! Sijo and Kimo since they do not require rhyme give us a vehicle for broader publication, keep going..I love amber and to think of all the history frozen in time in a resin, not cold like ice, not turned to ash as in lava GREAT poetic topic! LIGHT & Love
