An Ode to The Tranquility of Winter


An endless sea of diamonds

Greeted the golden sun today

Blinding white. And crispy arctic

Crystal shards of transluscent light

Dangled, sparkling everywhere,

Far as far as the eye could see.

Born of deep eternal wisdom

And great creative artistry

From Her Majesty Mother Earth,

The trees are calmly blanketed,

Sheltering the tiny creatures

Nestled so silently within.

Mint - frosted breath so coolly hung

Sweetly in the fresh mountain air,

As excited faery - lights danced

Around the silenced white forests.

Each pixie - light first of its kind.

No duplicates, so they do say.

Then bright of day turns into night

And luminescence abounded

Under the smile of Father Moon,

Filling the celestial skies

With endless seas of diamonds

Far as far as the eye could see.

And, in those endless diamond seas,

Between the bonds of earth and sky

With faery - lights upon the winds,

We feel the bliss of minted breath

Coolly sweet in the mountain air

Tenderly sheltered together.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Imagine two lovers so deep within themselves seeing only the beauty of a winter day / night.

Your images and words as precise as a diamond cutter perfecting its beauty. This piece is motivating, inspiring, and mood altering. I wasn't in a great mood before, but after this I'm in awe.
