Sister Winter, Brother Ice.



And so gently and silently the roots made their way ever closer to where she lay.

The earth above was hard with snow yet she lay safe and warm just feet below.

Breathing in and breathing out her body rising and falling she is alive no doubt.

A wreath of mistletoe adorns her head she is warm and cosy in her dress of red.

In here arms he gently sleeps he is huge and soft, dangerous, but her safe he keeps.

Sister Winter gently sleeps brother Ice Bear in his care of her, opens one eye and peeps.

Spring is surely on her way her snow drops and crocus buds are already out to play.

Ice Bear spends the winter season  travelling with Sister Winter it is his point it is his reason.

He loves her deeply like no other he will protect her with his life , will Ice Brother.

Travelling on through ice and snow together across the wastelands together they go.  Gentle care Ice Brother will always show Sister Winter for in truth he her loves so.

      I am so pleased you like the story, it has been inside my head for a long time. If I am not intruding can I ask why the picture holds your spirit it certainly does mine and I would like to write more about Sister Winter and Brother Ice and why he looks like a bear and she does not…… 😉 Thank you Ladyblue xxx

      Hi Eric I am so pleased that you like this, I have the artwork for a while and the story in my head last night they finally came together. I am pleased also that you saw that their love was really that of brother and sister and that they are more of the spirit world than the human world.

    Very emotive, this one Willow, I have tears in my eyes, and I have no idea why, unless I want to be loved as Ice Brother loves Sister Winter… True abiding love, . xPenx
