Winter Slumber

Winter’s icy freeze

Preserves nature’s splendors

In translucent silver encasings.

Glass needles and crystal branches

Threaten to fall and shatter the quietude.

Firs dressed in gleaming ball gowns

Fill the expanse with majesty.

Prickly burrs transformed to delicate roses

Are offered to those who pass and stare

At what lies beneath the magnifying glass.

Creatures clambering on glassy tightropes

And a lone crow sitting atop a silvery tower

Navigate the foreign slippery landscape.

All appears resilient in this metallic sheathing,

Seemingly under glacial hibernation:

This, a fleeting promise of immortality.
