A grim canopy of grey cloud casts over tall trees bare of leaves.
Shadows stretch across a golden palace, silent and cold.
Months of darkness and rain moves away.
Dumbfounded civilians stare in astonishment.
The last snowflake drifts into a child's hand.
Shimmering icicles dissolve in the sunlight.
The emperor awakes from a terrible illness and stumbles onto his moist balcany.
A burden is lifted.
A new life begins.
A newfound love blossoms.
