Frost Like Filigree

Frost Like Filigree

Frost filigree, superb can be
     as nature weaves crystal delights.
          With varied lacey forms, we see
sculpture sparked by lights.

'Neath sun or moon, artwork alights;
     the glistened shapes show artfully 
presenting joy within our sights.

Ice clings, designs so perfectly,
     as each drop freezes and unites
          to form creative artistry...
sculpture sparked by lights.
Frost filagree, can't always please 
     as nature weaves her dark displays;
          a fireman works in 'teen degrees 
caught in icy-glaze.

As hoses combat the hot blaze
     the water flows to quickly freeze.
'Tween flames of fire and ice he stays.

Thick lacey chunks his helmet seize
     and turns his gear to frozen phase.
          So many nights spent ill at ease
caught in icy-glaze.
Frost filagree presents some scenes
     of icy sculptures that bring pain,
          for left without heat often means
leaving home again.

Poor tenants live with heat arcane
     that fails when wintertime convenes;
          so often help is sought in vain.

Abandoned rooms with icy sheens...
     frost filagree, a massive plane.
          This winter wonder now demeans...
leaving home again.

    Very well crafted, Sandra. It was fun to see how someone did that particular theme. I am avoiding it because I just can't think of a thing and I cannot compare to one like this!!
