Prime Passion

When all my strength is just faith’s fading coal,
I wander to the earthen hearth, alone.
Forsaking warmth and fellowship within,
I seek to gain from lifeless stone
The dying heat that once enflamed my soul.

In pride, I hope that I might heat the hearth,
But unperturbed it steals my life away.
Once cold, I recognize my futile goal.
I turn to me to keep the cold at bay,
While pride enflames and only chills my heart.

Around my stony coal, cupped hands are formed;
Your Spirit blows and heat erupts again.
You place me back within my tended home,
White-hot, sustained, and basking in my kin;
While by our blazing union, hearths are warmed.
