Heart of Ice

Crystal heart of the frozen wastes
tempered by the vagaries of never-winter
moored in flakes of ice white beauty

       where the sweet song of birds
       and the fragrant scent of blossom
       never follow the cold North Wind

       where floral beauties
       are carved by Jack Frost
       into the brittle skin itself.

Crystal heart of the frozen wastes
tempered by the vagaries of never-winter
moored in flakes of ice white beauty

       where treasures are hidden
       in plain sight for all to see
       obscured by mist and fog

       where ravages of time
       have left their mark
       in secret runes upon the frost.

Crystal heart of the frozen wastes
tempered by the vagaries of never-winter
moored in flakes of ice white beauty

       where memories are frozen
       and beauty leaves you shivering
       no shelter and no respite

       where no one goes
       and no one stays
       unless the choice is none.
