February Artwork

Blown like smooth dunes, by the wind overnight,
the crusted snow glistened in the morning sun's light.

The brilliance danced on the canvas I viewed;
I stood in awe - all faith renewed.

Untouched by man, this scenic vision
proved Nature's pallette conquered her mission.

The winter scene won the artist a prize
for it dazzled and kept the focus of my eyes.

Her magic she wove all through the night -
Nature's painting complete to view in daylight.
