the little frosty vampire

January 21, 2016 2:45am CST
Stepping put of her home, the girl found herself in a mountain meadow full of sparkling vampires enjoying the sun. They glittered like a million tiny little stars in a clear night sky. She gazed in wonder at their beauty, longing to imprint them on her mind, for ever and always. Except, the mountain meadow was the streets and the sparkling vampires were simply frost, glittering under the spell of the setting moon. Does the moon set? The girl was just me, heading off to work. I love it when the whole world sparkles. It's a raw, harsh, completely natural beauty, a wrapping of arms by Mother Nature in a cold, but beautifully loving, embrace. A layer of frost is far prettier than snow and more welcome than rain or ice. I have a morning of poetry lessons. Perhaps the beauty of the morning will inspire me to enjoy them. *smile*

It wasn't that bad. The poem we studied today was rather melancholy and nice.

I didn't know you could take poetry lessons, sounds rather interesting. Vampires in daylight enjoy the early morning sun??? I wouldn't have thought so, seeing us vampires only come out at night lol.

It's an English GCSE lesson, it has to include poetry. Regarding the vampires ... have you not seen or read any of the Twilight series?! Shame on you!

I did not like poetry lessons, they were pretty boring, except when we studied some authors more interesting than others.

The only poetry I liked at school was poems by Sylvia Plath. I like it a bit better now I'm older, or maybe I just find it easier to understand and analyse. :)
