his thousand or so pixies,
giggling and cheering.
Each one carrying
the tools of their trade.
Magic paint brushes,
and fine tipped pens.
they begin their work.
Painting the thin layer of frost,
on cars, trees,
and even blades of grass.
A starting canvas.
Others take clouds,
fans and pens in hand,
drawing the flakes
from the fluffy easels.
Gently they send
the finished projects to earth,
creating the gentle blanket of winter.
Covering the earth in
pristine beauty as it sleeps.
Quick as they come,
leaving only their work behind.

In their wake, antique lace of crystal ice-
Scrimshaw tracery of pale frost flowers;
Tears a fickle flurry from fragile skies-
But bitter is her wintered breath the wind,
And ghostly the sound of its satin sighs;
Blue-veined deep the frozen lake of her skin;
Her voice a swansong of icicle lies-
Skeletal spine studded with evergreen-
The sheen of her shimmering white-wove veil
Crowned with holly bush and poinsettia leaf;
Her eyes drowning blue, her skin ghostly pale.

Forever there to bring a stop to the cold
Scent mesmerizing, warmth intoxicating
Always wanted, always wished for
Always wished away
Tries to hold on, tries to steal the warmth
Always whisked away by the warmth of Spring
But always there
Wanting what it can't have
Grasping what can't be reached
A weapon in the night
A shield in the light
Always so near
But always destined to be apart
Dear Jack Frost...There is only one thing I want this year,Dear Jack Frost...2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
So, please, lend me your ear
I'm not interested in kisses under the mistletoe,
I really just want a ground covered in snow
A white Christmas, my dear Jack, is all that I need,
Not boxes with bows or a Christmas tree;
No, my desire is much simpler,
To give way to a sparkling new year,
Just cover my town with ice and frost,
A gift that really has no real cost.
Because I miss the snowflakes and the biting cold,
This warmth and rain is truly getting old.
So, please, grant my wish this year
And fill my December with holiday cheer.

The floor was soaked as I bolted through the night after my prey. It was cold and the puddles were quickly freezing with thin layers of ice. This held no problem for me but I knew the man I was chasing would probably not hold out much longer against the weather. I did really need to run after him, I could just fly with my dark tattered wings but I couldn't bear to look at them anymore. There he was, my prey, running into a dark alleyway, how foolish. I chuckled as I pulled the crossbow from my back. Yeah sure we had guns nowadays but I preferred the old fashioned methods.
I followed him deep into the alleyway carefully listening to the slightest sounds, from the rats scurrying around the bins for food to the homeless people asleep in cardboard boxes. There he was, hiding in a cardboard box pretending to be a tired homeless person. I shook my head in amusement making my short black hair move into my eyes. It might have worked for a normal assassin but I wasn't a

Drunken snowflake dance,
stagger around the street light.
Someone call a cab
The cold air's biting
not like a crocodile
more like a puppy
Carve the silver lake
with graceful figure 8's
humble ice skater
Sub Zero wind chill-
snot freezes inside nostrils
hot air can't escape
Wave your arms and legs
give birth to a snow angel
then watch it ascend
Droopy carrot nose-
Melted snowmen have no pride.
The sun's a killer.
Goose bumps are moguls
and I will ski your body-
Lonely lost mitten
resting by the curb in snow
hanging from the roof,
Icicles are winter's teeth
Come tooth fairy, come.

Little Gray ManateeLittle Gray Manatee9 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
On a warm summer's day
In the middle of June
The ocean is calm
As the sun says it's noon
The waves are peaceful
Licking the shore
And a salty breeze blows
As crying seagulls soar
Beneath the water's helmet
Life is abundant
With colors so beautiful
And not one redundant
Eating the seaweed
From the ocean's floor
A little gray manatee
Resides with many more
A breath is needed
So she rises to the surface
And takes a big gulp
Expanding lungs fulfilling their purpose
But suddenly the silence is broken!
A roaring motor is heard
A great boat whips into view
And the little gray manatee panics a silent word
She takes off in a dash
Swimming as fast as she can go
But the boat approaches quicker
And the little gray manatee is just too slow
There is a sickening thud
And chopping before the motor is killed
Two humans gaze overboard
To see the little gray manatee lying still
It may seem a sad tale
To hurt one so innocent
But this happens all the time
And is no mere coincidence
If we could just listen

Outside snow's falling all around,
Already a foot's piled on the ground;
Inside the candles are burning slow,
The firelight has dropped down low.
Our family's gone, the day is done,
We had ourselves a lot of fun;
Cookies, cocoa , candy canes,
Stories, songs and board games.
But now there's only you and me,
On the rug, beside the tree;
Wrapped in blankets warm and tight,
Snuggling close in the soft light.
Been making love the whole night long,
Listening to old-time Holiday songs;
And this is how I dreamed it would be...
Our first Christmas, just you and me.

Sky walked toward the gate of the cottage when he heard shouting. A white rabbit thrust open a window yelling for someone.
"Mary Ann! Where did she put that Mary Ann!"
The rabbit rushed out of the house wearing a tunic with a fluffy collar and a red heart and carrying a trumpet, ran past Sky.
"Excuse me," Sky yelled.
The rabbit stopped and turned. He furrowed his brow at him.
"Reginald! Why aren't you in the garden?!"
"Reginald? No I'm not "
"Never mind. Go in there and help Mary Ann find my gloves! I'm late!"

*It was another late Sunday afternoon in New York City. While not as dark, the alleys itself appeared less inviting for anyone except for those who made it their home. In particular, a pair of homeless men hung out around a dumpster trying to find whatever food was thrown out. As one sat along the side eating half of a cheeseburger, the other had his legs knee-deep within the nearly-filled dumpster hoping to find any scraps or a half-empty bottle to drink. It was nasty and unsanitary, but it was how they made their living especially on hard times*
*All of a sudden, a series of sparks draw their attention, as the two men turned to see a build-up of light formed deep within the alleys. Suddenly, it glowed brighter and grew into a wide circle, swirling in mid-air for a moment. Then a great explosion of blue light nearly blinded the two men, as a great figure emerged through this portal causing a slight tremor upon impact. The humans slowly lower their hands trying to
