Shimmering, sparkling, and bright as the sun

Beautiful, romantic, and comforting as a lovers embrace

Tranquil, quiet, and gentle as a smiling child

Exhilarating, invigorating, bracing as a fresh start

Cold, bitter, and harsh as one betrayed

Furious, raging, and terrible as one seeking vengeance

Silent, creeping, and deadly as a coup de grace

All these things,

All these things and more epitomize this wonderful yet terrible aspect of Nature
