The power of a snowflake
I watch the lonely snowflake
fall slowly to the ground
so delicate, so beautiful
no menace meant
no sound
A smile forms upon my lips
i know what is too come
panic buying, traffic jams
no busses, trains
no fun
I'm far too old for snowball fights
the cold gets too my bones
days off sick, tucked up in bed
headaches, moans
and groans
I hate that lonely snowflake
i wish id never seen it fall
i'd like to live in some
far off place, where
it never snows at all

All it takes is something so small and delicate yet the 'maturity' of man seems to fall apart in panic.

Winter isn't so bad for me, but it is a pain when the people around me act as if it was 'end of times'. Joe

My dad hates snow, but I like it.

Wonderful thoughts, both good and bad about snow...I never knew snow until I moved to Central Washington. I found it beautiful the first few winters, then all I saw was a hinderance to getting anywhere...hee hee...len

Move to Texas...if we get snow it melts the next day, lol. I really enjoyed this piece Mr. Filthy...reminds me of home (Chicago), and dealing with the sloppy slushy streets day in and day out all winter long. Although I do not miss it at all, it was nice to reminisce about home...

This is a pleasing and an enjoyable read. First stanza sounded like a romance with a snowflake. Great observations in the middle stanzas, and the romance is lost in the end. I get snowbound at least for a week every year, and next time I will remember this poem to read:), ~Dean
