A wicked embrace of ice twists through the night, breaking through every inch of warmth in the forest and coats it with a sheet of fresh, substantial snow that quickly thickens on the hard ground. The stars, dim above the many pine trees, swarm the moon, giving off a bright white glow that echoes the snowy ground. They quietly rest atop the inclement weather as the mournful breeze moans around the shivering trees. The water that is frozen over secretly trickles underneath the ice, its unyielding pursuer; as an aura of extreme sadness.
This is the North.

This was inspired by a trip through my snowy neighborhood woods during the harsh winter season.

Everyone's crazy. You know why? We all want to be normal. Well, we cant define normal, and, the people you can point at and say, well isn't he/she normal are rare. Doesnt that kind of defeat the pupose of normal? -My Friend

I agree with Garnet, this is beautiful. In response to your question, no changes in wording, or length, but maybe some spaces? it seemed kinda dense. Amazing!

Beautiful. I love the word choice in this. It seems a bit short, but it still gives a really clear imagery. I really love the description. Very well done. :)
