Winter's Blanket

Written by: Brittany Reynolds

Crystals refract light into small rainbows
cascading together, a silver gleam,
masquerading as a clear white for those 
not ensnared within winter’s frosty dream.

Blinding brightness wars with frigidity,
warming the courageous who stand between
Bel’s stubborn sun and Cailleach’s snow sea.
Clarity of detail defines the scene.
