Shards of lightning split the sky
The moon in soft splendor fled.
Claps of Thunder boasted strength,
a sound that filled hearts with dread.
ascending from the heavens
Tenacious fingers of ice
Teased the earth with its caress
A tactic that was concise
The earth’s majestic beauty
hid in a frozen cocoon,
and struggled beneath the weight
to listen to winter’s tune

with twinkling prisms of light
but watched in fascination,
as fairies enjoyed the night
