More Musings of a Snow Flake

Source
Source

i know its a little crazy
and a bit outside the norm...
but, then, it is the way of it,
true to my flaky form...
I love to walk in snow fall
as flakes fall from the sky.
it holds a fascination that
all reason does defy...
to don my woolly mittens,
and fuzzy hat upon my head,
enfold my little piggies in
socks knit of cashmere thread...
to bundle in my jacket,
zipped up to my chin...
and wander in the snow fall
to the neighborhood chagrin...
there is some untold magic
that beckons unto me...
when snow flakes dance upon the air
in winter's own Capri.
so, if by chance, you see me...
please make no mere mistake!
your eyes do not deceive you...
it's just this little winter flake!

Very nice. It's amazing how no two snowflakes are exactly alike, just like us humans... hmmmm, the sheer thought of it. I like your poems.

I loved to walk alone

in the pines so straight and tall

at peace with life and God

As the silent snow would fall

Memories of my Iowa days

Well done!

I'm no poet, but sometimes I hack away at it.

hmmmmm, Mr. WillStarr, I don't know...seems like you "hacked out" a fine little sculpture here...might want to rethink that one!

Hey tnderhrt23, while you were musing at our snowflakes I was struggling in the driving in it. But the next day it appeared beautiful again and I was happy that I did not get stranded on the highway. My triple layers kept me warm that night, but the cozy bed when I got home felt better. As always, you captured the beauty in a marvelous way. I vote Awesome! CM

OMG! CMCastro! I suppose the truth of it is that If I had to drive in it, my musings would be vastly different...I am so glad you did not get stranded on the road in the midst of that snowstorm and made it home to your cozy little bed! Yikes, girl! Just the thought of it gives me a chill! Thanks for the vote!

Nice!! I live in the south, and have seen snowy weather, but never had the chance to frisk and frolic in it, just drive thru it as a truck driver. thank you for giving me some happy joyful feeling this morning. Just joined hub to start posting myself and ran across your poem listed. Ty.-Paul
