The Turning Point

The heart knows not winter
only change,
as the cold comes to usher in the flame–
I look out and embrace
what seem to be amber, spruce and rose
each of which soothe into quiet reflection.
Come February,
I have emptied the soul of pain
similar to how torn pages scatter in the wind.
