Magnificent Willow stands in silent prayer, calm and composed, so does the unruffled Evergreen, stretching its arms in thankfulness, decked with shimmering snow-pellets, gleaming and glistening as the countless stars are, in the absolute harmony of the magnanimous cosmos Majestic jewellery adorned. It's Christmas! symbolizing the spirit of kindness, love, compassion, joy... I glimpse through the hazy window-panes, world around me dazzling with shiny snow, reminiscences of many delightful Christmas days roll through my thoughts, an open album of heartfelt memories! Of boxes, ribbons, and golden bows, sprinkles, silver bells, and cookies... of family rejoicing together... of extending generous support to the needy. A tranquil, serene night, mesmerizing snow, falling uninterrupted, unhindered, envelop the entire universe around me. I ponder my life of multi-coloured hues, in every snowflake I behold, the inspiring dreams, the fervent hopes, the intense ebullience - for ever crystallized.

Thanks, Connie. Snowflake is my favourite image - although I did not grow up in Canada, I feel serene when it snows, especially at midnight.

"I ponder my life in multi-colored hues in every snowflake I behold." This is so beautiful Mala! Your wonder and awe of life comes shining through your words "ever crystallized." The snowflake is a perfect metaphor of life lived then re-lived in primal round. Congratulations on your win! Sending you blessings of wonder and awe for the new year dear friend. Sam

Lovely....! Can picture the fleecy snowflakes falling down and resting softly on the ground and on the willow and the evergreen. The tranquil Christmas night brings in the memories of sweet family reunions ! Well done Malabika....
