Blown like smooth dunes, by the
the crusted snow glistened in the morning sun's light.
The brilliance danced on the canvas
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
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.
