Snowflakes

 

Snowflakes are falling

A gentle whisper they make

Their silence is golden

But we must awake

 

They cover our world

In a blanket of snow

It’s just like a river

With a meandering flow

 

Ugly is hidden

Only beauty remains

But then there’s a issue

Your car may need chains

 

The shovel is near

With your name on the grip

The sidewalk is waiting

You don’t want to trip

 

Bend with your knees

You know how it’s done

Take time to remember

Those days in the sun

 

The chill holds your bones

In an icy deep blast

With fear in your heart

You know more is forecast!

DEATH OF A FLAKE

HE SWIRLS INTO THE ROOM

UNMINDFUL OF THE STARES

PEOPLE STEPPING BACK

HE GOES WHERE HE WOULD

OBLIVIOUS TO ALL

BUT HIS OWN DESIRES.

BUT THEN,

SOMETHING AHEAD

HE TURNS

PERHAPS IN FEAR

AND FALTERS

SLOWLY HE SUCCUMBS

DOWN HE DROPS

DARTING LEFT

TWISTING RIGHT

IS THERE NO ESCAPE?

WILL NO ONE HELP?

ALONE HE FALLS,

ALONE HE DIES.

A SINGLE FLAKE OF SNOW

FIRESIDE.
