Come and walk with me
Over this icy sheet of water
Crystalline , wafer- thin and fragile
Just like the path to eternity

Glide like a lazy ballerina
Floating aimlessly in gauzy organza
Breath frozen in tiny icicles
And snowy silence

Lighting a fire
In this winter wonderland
Flames orange in the cold
Streaks of purple and white

This world is like a bubble
Life is a moment of  frozen being
While underneath the ground
A volcano rumbles
