The Big City Winter Wonderland
Body shaking, heart is racing;
happiness all around.
She woke up to a new world with swift streets and elderly buildings
covered in snow from the sky to the ground.
gloomy white, like the nights staring at her ceiling
dreaming of happiness and wondering where it could be found?
She hears hearts beating, and the beautiful melody of the city
forcing her to simply follow the sounds.
Walking the streets of her new life,
making sure she makes every second last…
as her surrounding reminds her of holidays already past.
Trees of green covered in gorgeous white,
Like darkened hours brightened by all the beautiful lights.
Everyone walking by wearing rosy red cheeks
with hearts upon their sleeves to match perfectly.
Ready for anything, ready for the world to see.
People jumping puddles of water,
like stepping over tears of their pasts.
Until landing onto the slushy sidewalk,
like approaching a new marvelous mess.
Without a care,
because they say this is where dreams come true.
She believes them…
ready for the snowflakes to coat her body until she’s stationary.
No sun could melt away what this winter wonderland has created,
nothing will stop her from this ripened dream.
...sometimes things are actually what they seem,
And this is wonderful.
