Carry out their abuses in the dark
So when morning comes
The bruised clouds can say nothing
And we think that it's just the way the weather goes

The whistling winds
And the drum that is my heart.
None know the skies like I
And none can feel its beauty-
While I paint across the skies for you
My lanterns in the night
Touch unto the mountains high
Open arms of guiding light
For the souls of all to know
My domain above the clouds.
As I swim across the twilight
I marvel at you humans,
I will greet you all, some day,
Our lives will never know dusk
Safe from the terrors in the shadows
I am the Light, I am the Aurora.

In a tranquil state
Captured on spot
Only to be seen by a single shot
Caught in the wink of an eye

Cold and drafted
Light and petal soft to the touch
The snow drifting soundlessly on the ground
Not even leaving a sound or a breath
Twirls in the air like a iced dancers
Chilled air blowing harsh and freezing any poor soul in the midst of it
Distant wafts of fresh baked cookies that drift in the air
Faint Christmas songs being sung down the streets
Sky is neither night or day
But pure white for all day to what I see is dusk
Small creatures of the forest no longer rustle in bushes or trees
All is silent and sound
Not a peep
Not even a squeak
All is asleep
In this place we call a winter wonder land
Heaps of snow covering all there is
No green to be seen
All but pure white of the stars
And cold to match

until someone moves my plate.
By then, it is much too late
and nothing will escape
the destruction I create
because I am now awake.
My anger you cannot sedate.
I'm not picky about what I take.
But, this promise I do make,
I always give back a rebate.
It's best if you leave in great haste,
because next it's you that I'll taste!
What am I?
