A Little Snowflake

There once was a little snowflake
that was beautiful, cold and white
He was created up high within the clouds
during a storm one winters night

There were millions and millions of other flakes
but, no two that look alike
So, every snowflake received a name
and, his given name was Mike

Now as long as the wind was blowing hard
the more Mike hung around
But, it made him large and heavy
For, now he's heading towards the ground

There was Susan, Steven, Jimmy and Kyle
There was Sally, Kim and bill
They all came down together with Mike
as they landed on a sill

Of a cold and frosty window
on that stormy winters night
They gathered all together 
as they waited for morning light

The sun then rose above the horizon
it's light...lit up every flake
The colors that came from all Mike's friends
a rainbow it did make

The beautiful snow lit morning
left Mike nowhere else to roam
But, he was happy to be there with all his friends
as he made that sill his home

    I'll never look at snowflakes the same way again. I love how you gave each a name. It reminds me of the saying in the bible that all of our hairs are numbered. I imagine God must have a name for each snowflake. Beautiful, Roger. Congrats!

    If God had a name for each snowflake. I am sure that the name of one of the prettiest snowflakes would be Juliet. Thank you so much for visiting.....hugs...Roger

    Ah, You finally read it. But I don't know if you want to be part of the sill. I think having Susan,Steven Jimmy, Kyle, Sally, Kim and Bill resting on top of you would be one too many. Or maybe not. I just don't know. LOL...Thanks Linda....Luv & Hugs.....Roger
