Crystal lines with their
sparkling sides glistening in
early morning light.
Evergreen, dripping with heavy white blankets.
Rabbits hiding in their snug little
boroughs, safe from the chill.
Snow rising high, into drifts and mounds that dwarf the trees.
The sun glitters off everything,
magnified by the icy prisms.
A red cardinal perched upon a silvery-green bough.
Ever watchful, welcoming winter with his cranberry plumage.
A crystal winter in the tranquil forest land.
