Mastery of an Ice Crystal



a place in my heart
waits
for your arrival each winter
when all is right
you manifest
growing under starlight
your faceted form
reflects the beauty of our world
in a heightened way
my heart ignites
with a wild mix
ecstatic life
utter serenity
the mastery of an ice crystal

  58. Hello, Tammie Lee.

    The molding of the Nature is really mysterious.
    And it has the complete harmony.

    I was interested in the position of Montana all the time from the past.
    Because I was brought up on a small island, I feel the magnificent earth like the dream world.
    U.S.A. is very large!
