A Season Where Heaven and Land Coalesce (La’libertas)

Shimmering icy serenade

Adorns bare trees with crystal crowns

Cold Nature in crystal white gowns

Caressing eyes with pure white shade

 

Wintry willow wands pirouette

In tandem with the drafty winds

Stirring their wintry dreams

They remain grounded on the frozen earth

Denuded yet regal in the nascent rays of sun

Whispering warm words, savoring each moment.

 

Silver sequins silhouette frowns

Serene, idyllic moments stayed

Indelible memories made

Echoing calmness through all towns

 

Autumnal foliage seeks refuge in winter cradle

To be coddled by the pristine white rays of hope

With the migratory birds crooning

Mother Earth relaxes amidst the umber caramels

Upon the Angel’s carpet of Coruscant snow

Beaming in its ethereal glow.

 

Embracing its icy song, with a passionate touch of divine connection

Winter’s here, with mellifluous breeze laced in its warmth of affection.
