The Fruit of Winter

The open hearth is the inversion of summer,
the heat that resumes its forgotten presence,
the fire that reminds us of its warmth,
the enlivening of its soul again,
a revenant that defies the mortality of life,
the fruit that is born from its resurrection,
the feeling that invigorates the spirit again
and fortifies the knowledge
that the warmth of summer is
the brighter side of that inversion
and the resurgence of hope.
