SNOWFLAKES

They flurry through the air like a million little gems
Wee, white molded designs like flowers without stems . . .
Falling from a drab sky to a grey, cold earth below
They fill the air like cobwebs of iridescent glow!

Who knows where they come from or how their designs are formed
As they hurry to earth, blown by blizzard and storm . . .
Who sees how they all merge as one, in piles so deep
As they drift down silently while all earth seems asleep!

  1. nice! I just heard on the radio that the new problam for you in Denver is that trash isn't beeing picked up! Are you one of those people? If it was me, I would take it out late at night and put it in the yard next door. :)

  2. Hello dear MArgie

    I am not going to comment on the darling little snowflakes 'cuz that's what they are... individually.
    I will just say that when the conditions are right I cannot wait to walk down the street or on a trail on virgin, crunchie, glistening snow...

    Big hug

  3. Morning Margie,

    Beautiful poem, but I suspect when the piles are measured in feet, that the thrill is gone. How many days until spring?

    Have a wonderful day. More audio today. :)

  7. Hi Margie !
    Technically speaking no two snowflakes are alike. each has an individual shape.

    got caught in a blizzard once while trekking in the himalayas, Pride and over confidence nearly killed me.

    Happy New year Margie, hope the new year brings greater joy and inspiration.

    love and hugs

  12. Beautiful poem Margie!

    Please send some of those snowflakes our way! I miss the snow. I guess I'm more of a cozy, winter person.

    Thank you for the lovely note on my blog. I'm so glad to have met you too! I feel like each time I read your blog I get to know you better through your poetry and also your comments.

    Take care and wishing you the happiest New Year!

  28. Andrew, thank you!
    We did not have our trash picked up today...just too much snow here!
    If I put my trash in my neighbor's yard, late at night, I just might get caught...LOl!

    Angel, I went for a walk today on all the crunchy, glistening snow!
    It was so cold though, and the wind started blowing so hard, I had to turn back home, as it beacame unpleasant!
    Hoping for sunshine tomorrow, but I think more snow is in the forecast!
    Big Hug back to you!

    Brian, thanks so much!
