‘Hallways of Reminiscence’

Krishna Mehra, a student at National Institute of Technology, Hamirpur, writes a poem titled ‘Hallways of Reminiscence’, for the Shortlist.

Hallways of Reminiscence

A mirror to a mirror
Filled with inner reflections
Like a sun to a moon
Scoured with love.

Floating around the corners of the hall
Are those silent confabulations
That echoes even when emotions dissolve
Draping that pain
Absorbing that amorousness
Embracing that silence

As each night sinks in the cradle of sunshine
I would be reborn a phoenix
And will arise from the ashes of your love.
