Frozen beauty

If you could see cold —

Then it might be painted with frost and lilac

And the first blush of a late winter dawn.

    Hubba hubba! This is cause to take that second sauna and plunge into the cold. STUNNIN! On second thought, nex the sauna, I’ll just roll in the snow. Hoarfrost, only nature can wear this public and get a way with it. Dare I say, sexy.
