Child of All Seasons

Diamonds grace her head
Jewels from the sky.
My summer sprite turns to winter princess
Before my very eyes.

Cloaked in powder blue
She is the ice upon the lake.
She is giggles and laughter and candlelit nights,
Snowmen, igloos, and snow cream shakes.

She slides upon the ice
While I struggle to stand still.
She delightfully cries “snow!"
I pull the duvet as far as it will.

Snow boots replace sandals
Wool hats cover pony tails.
Icy winds pull and push and tease
Sending  child and flakes to swirl.

In spring she blooms with flowers
Summer she is butterfly  performing tango with the bees.
Autumn she shimmers in vivid  jewel tones,
Winter brings its own sparkle, like the crystals of icicles and bejeweled trees.

Every season she embraces
This elf that shares my heart.
One with nature
Finding its treasures,
This brilliant star with a passionate spark.

Join in the fun at One Shot Wednesday!

More and more precious as the years unfold. Like the way you allude to the treasure of this child - as it should be the finest cut diamonds in the world

Nicely penned for One Shot
