She Is Winter

Alabaster skin, refined delicacy

opalescent as Mother of pearl.

Sapphire glints on ice,

Silver locks, adorned with snowflakes all aswirl.

Iridescent.

Poignant, tinkling, musical laughter,

Icicle fingers dripping diamonds,

Sunlight sparkles brilliant;

Blue topaz on Quartz.

Deliciously cool

nickelled light.

Frosty, haughty, immune.

Irresistible.

She Is Winter…
