If you live in the Midwest, maybe you had a snow day too. I spent mine watching SNOWFLAKES fall, writing, and remaining unplugged until this moment. This poem written today honors snowflakes along with snowy glimpses around the house. January isn’t always gentle with us, but when we slow down enough to listen and learn from her…well, she’s vast.
Poem for SNOW
My head is in the clouds.
Today snowflakes fall and teach as only holy hexagons can.
What do I know about you, snow?
Somewhere in a cloud, a bit of water vapor lives.
Maybe she dreams big.
Maybe she prays silent to be solid.
For a chill to January air to wake a crystal to life.
Born to fly.
Born to shape shift.
Built for a glittering disco in grey skies.
Does a crystal love to hook up?
Is she lonely?
Is she wooed?
Is the absent fear of engulfment a clue?
Please, snowflake scientists, share more data soon.
For I’m awed by the path of this prism…
from sky to icy ground.
By the changes from sacred collisions as a snowflake journeys down.
I was never charmed by geometry, its elegance too rich for my soul.
But I watch these crystals collect and connect, and the equations…
nope, I still don’t need to know. 🙂
But I’d love to know what the snowflakes know
as the weight of their tender togetherness grows…
into blankets for shivering earth,
