Months from now,
the fire pit in our backyard will be ablaze
on a summer night,
throwing off heat and spitting out embers
as we enjoy a summer evening on the patio.
It’s hard to imagine now,
seeing it snow bound and dripping in icicles.
But that’s how life goes;
it freezes and thaws,
it ebbs and flows,
it comes and goes.
Change is good.
