Snowflake – Theme Friday

A single snowflake fell
froze in mid-air
then drifted on lazy wings
and disappeared
into artic black

The sparkle
shimmers still
and stirs a
memory of
distant silver days

snow men
ice skates
rosey cheeks
purple mittens
short days
hot cocoa
long nights
giggles shared
in bunkbeds

Falling asleep
listening for
sleighbells

  1. I like this, especially the memories invoked by that one snowflake. Very lively poem, Chica.

    Hey Chica,
    Yes, I guess it is lively and snowflakes have always stirred memories for me, you know?
