The dust of the Gods falls 
With a certain sense of grace.

Unlike cousin Rain,
She does not fall 
In lament,
Each splash of sorrow bringing life to barren ground.

Unlike cousin Hail,
She does not fall
In anger,
Each explosion of hatred colliding with that which binds.

The white powder has pride,
She falls
For freedom,
Resisting gravity but not striking back at the foe,
Floating in silent peace, 
Whilst dancing in extravagant jubilation,
She gently lands among her waiting sisters.

    What a wonderful way to bring warmth from the cold. Your words bring peace to something that I once saw as frigid and often dangerous, I don't think I will ever see snow the same. Beautiful write, very deserving of being featured this week. Congratulations. Smiles from Lolita
