You Were Born to Beauty

You were born to beauty,

destined for greatness,

but since your Ice Age,

you positively glow.

Subtle changes in your DNA

translate red into ruby,

yellow to gold.

Pressurized by pain,

flash-frozen by distress,

fired in the furnace of Fate,

orange becomes copper,

blah becomes bling!

The frost becomes you, little one –

lift up that golden head,

wipe tears from cherry cheeks.

You were born to beauty…

Frost brings out all of the season’s best colours – is there a life lesson hidden in those rainbow-gem leaves?

    The intensity of natural changes is the perfect canvas through which to view our own transformation. Nicely said.

    “Blah becomes bling”–that IS encouraging. Send me some frost.

    Oh I like the thought of a lesson in the frost! God bless you and all the beauty He reveals in you and through you!
