An Image of Snow

Crystal magic

Pure and clear

Delicate patterns, so unique

Falling, ever falling down, down

Tossed by wind, destroyed by rain

How can such a tiny little thing

Be such a means of chaos?

Making a dirty world white

Creating worlds of wonder

Widening young eyes

Cold fun

      Thank you, Billybuc. I appreciate your compliment. I'm not really much of a poet, so I'm glad it came over well.

      I enjoy poetry in a simpler form, the ability of the poet to portray images using a minimum of did it quite well here.

      Delightful - and it waxes and wanes just like a snowy day.

      Thanks, W1totalk. It came to me on a day when Portland was having crazy cold and snow.
