Deep Winter ~ Season Sonnet #1

Her soul was icebound in an arctic land.
In the glow of moonlight, he stood alone.
Without a thought, he took her algid hand
and brought warmth to a heart frozen like stone.
It started as a flicker, just a spark,
some tinder, air - and with a puff of smoke,
a tiny flame sprung forth to light the dark.
Lo! After fitful sleep, her heart awoke!
Clutching each other, bathed in winter's cold,
they tended the fire they had created
until it burned brightly and uncontrolled.
Briefly, it seemed that the two were fated.
Then, quickly as new Love gave in to lust,
passions' fire burned away to ash and dust.
