The Snowflake

Young love is pure - like snow when fallen new -
and always I’ll recall one wondrous day!
Through dawn, soft powder fell; clouds lingered grey
until mid-morning. Splendid sun shone through
the gloom, and sky turned periwinkle blue!
Excited, we ran laughing, out to play
in snow, which all around us brightly lay.
But never did I guess what would ensue. . .

You chased me, until breathless, we both dropped
onto a blanket of sheer white, and then
a snowflake touched my mouth. Your fingertips
began to trace its shape, until you stopped. . .
Your gaze became intense, and that is when
you bent to kiss the snowflake from my lips.

    How lovely! A real beauty in expression and verse, Andrea. You are most certainly one of my favourites with your expressive pen! My grandson Tom is only five, but he seems wise beyond his years, and is a joy to have around. The 'bingo' callers refer to the number 8 as a 'fat lady' here in the UK, Andrea hicky

    The tender moment of that kiss. You feel the fun and then the passion in this write. Good one. God Bless Phyl

    This is a good one, best of luck in the contest! Thanks for the comment on "Midlife Memory" a senyru. Am trying my hand at other forms of poetry of late and finally 'get' metre, iambic pentameter ...a sonnet is next on the agenda. Will always do haiku, senyru and tanka but want to branch out, see what else I can do! lol

    Quite, quite beautiful, this one is destined for the top of the class - good luck in the contest
