frost-clouds and magic mornings

Recommended Posts

have you ever woken to a blanket-wrapped world?

i have.

there's a magic in the white light that streams through your window,

a magic in flinging back the curtains to a frost-covered earth.

everything's clean, in the snow.

everything's silent.

 

have you ever stood in a cloud?

i have.

shin-deep in sugar-spun-frost, staring up as the stars flutter down,

as the sky breaks into pieces to dance on your eyelashes.

 

we are not built for the cold.

our skin turns pink and our limbs numb

and our eyes water and swell and our breath is clouds.

by all rights, we should fear it.

but who could fear something so beautiful?

and in the blanket-silence broken by shrieking, ecstatic laughter,

it is easy to see that we do not.

 

there's a magic to it, you know?

there's a magic in the snow days.

there's a magic in the snow.

 

 

AN: I. Love. Snow. Okay? I love snow. So yeah it snowed yesterday and I haven't written anything in a while so here we are.
