Embers Glow In Sunset's Snow In snowflakes’ sunlit souls - an amber chest, orange, yellow, blushing red impassion resplendent ember hues of stained-glass zest, vivid vibes enliven snow from ashen. Inspired bliss of shining kiss on pale snow, with delicate caresses Sol imbued highlights to saturate the talc aglow romancing frosted facets’ fiery mood. Warm spectrum seeps across the crystal white as sleepy sunbeams stir the embers’ heart, igniting jewel tones before twilight frost bitten festival of arctic art. Illuminated thrills in chills impress in ruby rapture sunset's snow does dress.

An equisite piece, Susan. There are so many thousands of poems about Winter / the snow and it's incredibly challenging to find a new angle, but you've nailed it!! If the photo wasn't attached to the poem, that's the *exact* image conjured by your words. Congratulations on your win! Regards, John.

You haven't quite hit the iambic pentameter, but I for one don't give a toss. Your alliteration and wording is superb, and the northern lights are beautifully expressed.

You really know how to create imagery through your words, and it is always difficult in a sonnet with great meter.. you have achieved that easily...I think this should finish very high in the contest..
