A tent of ebony velvet covers the expanse above me. Scattered across it is the dust of a million shattered diamonds, each with their own spark. The frigid air takes my breath away, in the way that only winter can. The snowy landscape glows like white quartz in the starlight.

Cars speed by on the highway, their man-made lights piercing the night with their ugly rays.

The flawless grace of nature is defied by man’s prerogatives. We are but a thorn in her side.

I lack the words to describe nature’s breathtaking canvas. It feels like treason to even try.
