Passion

Passion is a fire
burning in a wood stove,
glowing bright, giving heat
to the cold home around it.
Kept fed, its flame
will survive and
keep dancing fervently.
Ignored
it will dim,
wane, and die.
The ashes will still
hold onto embers,
flickering, remembering
the blaze that was.
It waits to be relit
always ready
to bring back the warmth.
