Silver Lace Cloak

Silver Lace Cloak

written by: Ann Christine Tabaka



Silver lace spills off her shoulders,
like armor against the storm.

An icy garment to guard her heart
from all who dare enter.

It has fused to her soul
to warn against intrusion.

Encased in its beauty
her mystery is perfect.

No one knows who lives within
that forbidding silver world.
