    This poem was dreamy, mystical and magical... I adore the word usage within this piece!

    The "crystals and rainbow ice" are very powerful within this poem... because the underlined message within is the sorrow and burdens of the person.... The world wants to see sunshine, even when the sun feels cloudy.... just my thoughts..

    Truly adored this poem!

    The imagery in this piece is the aspect that catches my eye the most. I was intrigued by the lighthearted nature to the descriptions and how the connotations of nearly every word were something at least pleasant while the purpose of this piece was certainly not to entertain - I suppose all I mean to say is that I enjoy the juxtaposition here as well as the effort to write in a pleasing manner while conveying much more depth. There are a few ways that I was able to take this piece, and that is something that truly allows poetry to transcend from generation to generation as well as from author to audience. I was absolutely entranced by this piece this week, and I'm so sorry I don't have more to say about it, I am just so speechless.
