her watch was so delicate
that the perfume of the roses
in the warm garden breeze
could stop its hands
time would go still
and freeze

Very magical.I love things dusted with ice or sugar crystals, or frost they have a heartbreaking delicacy like frosty patterns really early on a winter morning that vanish with a warm touch.....
