Mnemosyne (goddess of memory and mother of the Muses)  

Memory is 
The mother of the Muse 
She beckons 
Submerged experiences 
Hidden deep in
Our cells, so they say

She nurtures them through 
The umbilical cord
Which ties to the Self
Events long forgotten 
Till they grow strong enough to 

Our consciousness

Then she coaxes them from 
Comfortable obscurity
Down the birth canal 
Into the light 
Red-faced and screaming
They live again

In words
