The Ice Tyrant

Poetry By: Ousma

Inspired by brucek's "Wandering Words", which was in turn inspired by one of my poems. I love the idea of an 'ice king' that he mentioned in his poem, so I decided to expand on that idea with a queen.

The mighty trees burst into flames

Their last stand as forest warriors

Against the sweeping shadows cast by the Ice Queen

Leaves of ember rain upon the ground

And a vibrant wildfire spreads abound

Across the rolling, tumbling hills

Reaching the distant glowing horizon

The warriors crash like a firework meteor

Lighting up the world before descending into brown

A frozen moon looms victorious

In a night full of shivering stars;

The Queen's flag fluttering in triumph

Her Icy Majesty rises with the sun

Wither her crackling blue grace she pirouettes

Across the fields of silken grass that she has won

Leaving behind trails of souvenir diamonds

That glitter and flicker in the dawn light

Releasing atmospheres of creeping fog

Raising a scepter of frosted lightning

She summons armies of ashen clouds

Smothering the sun's fiery reinforcements

And they release soft q-tip fluffs

That spiral in whimsical drifts down to earth

Her Frozen Majesty's musical laugh cracks the air

She knows she's imprisoned us behind orange hearths

As we desperately flee the crystals

Paralyzing our blue-tinted lungs

The Queen will sing her devastating siren song

Clutching the land in her cold spider fingers

Until her last drift of crystal white is evaporated and gone

And brave new soldiers burst forth

From the branches of their fallen martyred brethren

The stunning Lady Green glows like an imploding emerald

As the first timid life spurts from ice-burnt soil

She sings their shimmering souls to overgrown vibrancy

And luscious vines crawl across the Ice Queen's eerie deep grave
