glass dusting
slicing
cutting
burning what skin it touches
tearing into the night
a maelstrom of a wind
like a whirling dervish
unceasing
uncaring
screaming
insane silent gesture
of maniacal disorder
without sense or reason
blinding
freezing
blizzard

then the wind calmed

more warmth
but a little
just enough
the flakes becoming like thin flat mica sheeting
imitation frosting on imitation cakes
drifting down in shimmering crystals
spreading across all that is there
clean
pure
virginal
like a promise
of something
unseen
and still unknown
soft candyfloss angelhair white
it made it all magical
like an apology
even though it tried to freeze you
as it made icecream seem
like a warm bath
stark
there
in the night
