Snow Roses

Snow roses,
They strike their poses,
Petals glistening,
They seem to be listening
To the flakes drifting
Silently about them.

Snow roses,
Crystalline flora,
I adore them,
Frozen fantasy.

Snow roses,
Tuned to the beat
Of winter's drummer,
So different from flowers
Of spring and summer.
