Reflection of Beauty

Snowflakes glittered in the torchlight, softly drifting to ground. Glorfindel acknowledged their beauty, seeking a poetic comparison as he strode briskly down the hallway. What else shimmered so? The stars? Fiery cinders whirling up the chimney from collapsing tinder? Perhaps the gleaming motes of light reflected from the eyes of small creatures outside a campsite? All were inadequate, tossed aside.

Arriving at his destination, he knocked gently on the door, then turned to watch the twinkling flakes again. The door opened and he saw the flakes’ glimmer reflected in his lover’s eyes. “Erestor,” he murmured as he entered the room.
