Glittering glass shards,
Ice daggers frozen hard,
Savagely darting at dark in attack;
Flash through existence,
Strike all resistance,
Shining, they shiver and shatter the black.
Silver ice swirling,
Flung through space hurling
And twisting in crystalline needle-like form;
Half flake, half flurry,
Desperate in hurry
To battle the stillness and conjure a storm.
Flecks of sharp mirror
Cracked, yet still clearer
Than water, fly frantically with no respite;
Not snow, but ice flakes
The night's soundless cold breaks
To fill deaf'ning silence with slivers of light;
"Til shattered and broken,
Vestigial token
Of winter's force now to eternity sent,
As dancing ephemeral,
Khione's apparel
Fades into softness, its fury full spent.
