Vast White Plains This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

These grassy plains now blanket covered
As November rears his Yule brother
Sickles they form from the once blossoming trees

No flake bears resemblance to their kin
As intricate designs fall from the ethereal to our feet
In a manic depression they learn to fall

One by one after hearing the call
The stark dead ground awaits the arrival
For the vast whiteness must come forth day and night

As they reflect the sun’s rays and illumine just right
The cold winters air that knows no loving warmth

The only embrace takes place inside
As families revel and seem to forget

The frost that pierces our hearts
The snow reveries they begin
As the dawn of a day begins deep within
The satanic hero the ice that forms on water

Crystallized up and ready for all even sons and daughters
Christmas day has finally come
And all forgotten of what consumes the earth

White tidal waves that seek to crush
All under the wretched frozen waves
And the abysmal dawn overshadowed by gifts

The white vastness backs down for no man
