Snowflakes

a slight breeze
and loosely packed snow
on yonder branch
comes tumbling down
in myriads of tiny snowflakes
each flake becomes a miracle
glistening in the streetlight
like a diamond

Very true, nice read, it always amazes me how every snowflake is unique, almost seems to be an impossibility.

Hello Socrates ,

we had hailstone showers here in Ireland this afternoon -so the snow may not be too far away !
You have described delicate snowflakes so perfectly here -each one unique and "glistening " .
A beautiful poem -well done you ! F hug

Just like human beings, there are no two snowflakes alike. Lovely poem for this time of the year, when snow is forecast here in England. BRRRRRRRR purple heart

Thank you for your comment, Rob. I don't know how Mother Nature does it but she makes each flake different.
Have a nice day!

Hi Odette

Thank you for your comment. The fact that no two snowflakes are alike indicates that Nature is a master designer.

Have a lovely day!

Hi beautifulyou

Thank you for your comment.
You saw diamonds on the water's surface. My piece highlights diamonds in the snow. They are all diamonds, lovely diamonds, free for all to view.
Who is the little guy in the bubble in the middle of the snowflakes? He is kind of cute.
Have a wonderful day!
