like a frosty blizzard
stretching across the winter wonderland
with soft albino petals
The frozen stem,
as still as a corpse
that shatters every summer year
easily as a frozen lake.
It’s grassy green roots
destroying anything in its path,
protects the frosty diamond within its roots
like a ferocious lion guarding Family.
The blue leaves hang
like a weeping willow tree
but the leaves are prickly and poisonous with a tingle of venom
and flutters in the cold air.
