Sassy Sun Rarely Shares Her Secrets

sassy sun shares her sordid secrets with few perhaps dainty rose bush in summer a glimmer offered to pumpkin in October nature’s season features strain to understand but sun reveals to only a favorite few, her ideals this December the oaks are straining to understand sun smirks, glowing on icy field covered with blue white snow one bunny has left streaks of soft sliding jumps as tiny ski marks the rest of the snow is pristine, twinkling and shining like diamonds the entire scene blue white if you do not count the oaks. a lone cardinal hears sun’s secret as she begins to melt night's snow. sings sun's truth with eager beak. robins and wrens join harmony. all is lovely until blue jay’s caw distorts sun’s secret. the only reality left is a frozen field guarded by oaks. sun gladly leaves for the evening.
