This is an excellent response to the word prompt— Snowflakes.
You have very well explained the meaning of the word, as well as composed a beautiful poem, The Snowflakes Inspector.
This is educative as well as very beautifully expressed.
The link was giving some trouble in the title line. But, it’s visible in the comments. I hope others can view it.

I loved reading it, especially with reference to the mountain regions of the World, which you have mentioned.
Thank you for sharing.
John, your poetry and acrostic poem are all too mesmerizing. I enjoyed reading them both a lot. No one would ever doublt you have never seen snowflakes. I admire your imagination and creativity. The quotes throughout your article have made it so ornamental. Great work!
Thanks Chitrangada for sharing John's awesome post.
Hello Chitrangada. Thank you so much for sharing the link. Yes it works in the comments. I am glad you enjoyed my article/poems and that you found it educational. Much appreciated.
This is a terrific response to Brenda's 45th prompt. I enjoyed your light-hearted poem, John. It was a pleasure to read, and I enjoyed the information on snowflakes.
Thank you for posting John's poems Chitrangada.
First let me say that I'm amazed by all those statistics on snowflakes.
Your poem, "The Chief Snowflake Inspector" is quite amusing.
You have definitely put a smile on my face.
A Snowflake Inspector...I must say your muse ran away with this one.
I've never even thought of such a thing, but I love it. It would be great to inspect snowflakes.
This kind of reminds me of Alyssa's piece of a cloud salesman.
In any case, I hope your application gets approved soon.
We've got snow on the ground here and it's in the teens, so bundle up.
See ya soon, Mr Snowflake Inspector.
Your other poem "Snowflake ~ an Acrostic Poem" does an awesome job of
showcasing the slang meaning of Snowflake in an acrostic poem spelling the word snowflake.
It depicts a shallow person who takes offense easily, thinking everything that is said is directed towards them.
And there it is...
A quote that justifies my feelings of Alyssa's cloud poem...
Great job on this one.
Your muse didn't disappoint.
You can write on most anything & your imagination is out there.
I'll post a link in the word prompt article.
Hi Brenda, thank you for your in-depth comment on my poems. I was actually thinking of Alyssa's wonderful 'Cloud Salesman' piece when I was writing this. I am glad you enjoyed the read and thank you for the prompt that inspired this writing.
Your sense of humor will not be denied. Love your creativity here, and it raises a question: how do we truly know that no two are the same? It's impossible to prove, or so it seems to me. I'm sure scientists have a way to prove that, but I've never actually seen or heard the proof, you know?
Still, even if it isn't true, and I'm sure it is, it's a cool fact, pun intended.
Have a great weekend!
Bill, that was exactly my thought when I wrote this. How do they know that no two snowflakes are alike? It is impossible to prove..at least it seems to me.
I am plased you appreciate my sense of humour and that it showed in this poem. Take care and enjoy the snow.
I'm not sure how one would prove it.
I'm certain there must be a way, but they fall so quickly & join in with the others.
Many of them melt on contact or merge in with the others to make one big blanket.
Hi John, I loved your Poems. The one about the snow inspector made me smile throughout. Great sense of humor and creativity. Thanks Chitrangada for sharing John's work.
What a cute idea...that of being a snowflake inspector! I love your imagination John. Thanks Chitrangada for sharing his work with us.
Peggy, we need to create new jobs during this pandemic and outdoors ones are the way to go. What better occupation could there be then a snowflake inspector? Thank you so much for reading.
That's such a great point John.
Let me know when you get this Snowflake Inspector job, but 10 to 1 says you high tale it back to Australia after about a week or two.
Then you can take me back there until winter is over.
Haha. I have a strange feeling you may be right. I think snow may be good to experience on a holiday but not for an extended period.
That first snowfall..no matter how old you are or how many times you've seen it...Is Magical.
But after digging your car out, shoveling the snow, and getting caught in traffic jams from car wrecks you get tired of it.
Too bad we just can't stay children & only enjoy the sledding, ice skating, hot chocolate, making a snowman and all that fun stuff.
John, this is such a sweet and cute response to the word prompt, 'Snowflakes'. As always a very delightful read . I loved it. I also enjoyed reading about scientific research and learning about snowflake slang. The first quote says, It is necessary to stand out in the cold to appreciate the beauty of a snowflake. I'm curious to know if there's another way to appreciate the beauty of a snowflake... I would enjoy admiring the beauty of a snowflake, but the thought of standing in the cold gives me chills. Thank you so much for sharing.
Thank you so much Chitra Di for creating this forum discussion.
Happy weekend and Blessings to both of you!!
Hello Misbah, thank you for taking the time to read this as I know you are taking a break at the moment. I am pleased that you found the article both educational and enjoyable. If you are quick, I imagine you could take some snow inside and place it under a microscope to appreciate a snowflake before it melted lol. Take care and many blessings.
You can enjoy the beauty of a snowflake from the comfort of a warm house.
Just look out the window and see the snowflakes floating silently as they make their way to the ground.
They glisten and sparkle in the moonlight.
The ground itself when covered with this white blanket actually lights up the whole yard. It's quite beautiful to see.
Marvelous, John! This was the most fun I've had reading one of your poems. I chuckled all the way thorough. I love how you step outside the box and take an unexpected angle in your poetry. Thanks for touching on the 2010 meaning of "snowflake" as well. It fueled so much conflict in the political arena here in the States. Thanks for another creative and entertaining offering.
Hi John! I enjoyed reading your response too about snowflakes. I never thought there is a slang meaning for it thank you for the info. We have visited a site to view the mt fuji in Japan last 2019 but unfortunately it was so foggy and roads got zero visibility with fog. Your sense of humor really amazes me each time. Hope I can bring back my humor to my hubs as well soon, when I get better. Blessings to you John.
Hello Gianella, thank you for taking the time to read these poems. I am glad you found them humorous and educational. I am sure you can add some humour to your own hubs when you are recovered and writing again. I hope your recovery is going well. Blessings to you.
I must have missed something.
I didn't know you were currently not feeling good.
Please take care of yourself an feel better soon.
No worries about the word prompt. Whenever you write it, I can post a link to the article.
Just concentrate on yourself...we'll be here.

Chitrangada has written a realistic commentary on the generation shift between the older and newer generation. Today's generation is working 24X7, which was not the case in the older generations, who led a easier life. I loved the poem, which talks about handing over culture, values, and finally...
