Pixel Prose Challenge– “Winter”

Christmas Fairy

Winter shows her colors in the sparkle

on the crystal frost she paints on the trees, and

in the bite of the cold north wind

she caresses our pale cheeks – rosy.

Pinecones, holly, and red berries

encircle her golden tresses,

while icy starlight twinkles

in the deep green of her eyes.

Winter wears a mantle of the

finest moss – the palest green,

her spider-web gown of the whitest silk.

Winter is a fickle teenage girl,

teasing us with her whims –

all the while throwing tantrums of

blizzards, fog, ice, and snow.

Hail Winter!

Her reign begins.
