You are my snow angel-
my life crystallizes in your frozen
breath-
my love for you-
encased in the symmetry of a snowflake-
and gleaming like a solid slab of February
ice-
the frigid wind only stokes the
embers burning inside-
they grow hot with each swirling
gust-
they grow powerful with each
howling burst-
and they burn forever in their shining
home-
an angel-
gliding gracefully through the fine
powder-
floating mysteriously through the
winter mist-
your smile as stark as the white
horizon-
an angel-
my snow angel-
my life, crystallized in your frozen
breath-
I see myself in your reflection-
and in it, I smile*

    Your choice of words are so very descriptive! So many beautifuly, colorful, heartwarming images are in this poem – “my life crystallizes in your frozen breath…your smile as stark as the white horizon….floating mysteriously in the winter mist. Your use of hot & cold in this poem truly made me feel the elements.

    You are truly a gifted poet!
