More Snow

Snowflakes are falling
each of unique design
some going straight down
but most floating sideways
on the gentle breeze
under cloudy-gray skies
hoping to defy gravity
for as long as possible
and enjoy the journey
back to the earth
from which new life
will eventually arise.


The rate of snowfall quickly increases
heavier, now, most fall straight down
‘til a breeze circles, again, from left to right
and nature transforms, momentarily.
Flakes change size and pattern of flight.


I sit, looking out the window; pen my
marvel at the accumulated whiteness.
As the speed of flakes’ descent accelerates,
my sun-yellow shovel waits, knowingly,
ready to dig out the day’s remainder.

"I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around
accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it's both."

Your snow poem is making me look at the snow in a whole different way. Now, instead of hating it at times, I will remember your dear poem. Take care my friend and Merry Christmas! Peace, Pink. bouquet

Very beautiful write my dear Joy. I love the snow. Of course, I don't want to live in an area where it snows a lot but the occasional visit to where it falls and and spread its fluffy, beautiful whiteness and giving me that almost religiously angelic feeling, is such a wonder. A breaking to the monotony of the weather and so the beauty of enjoying all the different seasons.

But more so is the sign of washing away old stuff and gives birth to the renewal of everything when spring comes.

I love joy and thanks for the read..

Merry Christmas
