Snowfall in July

Listen to poem:
Snowfall in July David J Walker What if today Is just the extension of Another summers day to Remember a Decembers snowfall The subtle absurdity of snow Shaking like the glitter Of a snow globe on A sunny summer Sunday That could be any day in July July is hot and dry Except in the perverse figment of A writers imagination of A snowstorm in summer I am anxious to see if winter is really willing to return tomorrow With wind and snow On a darkened August afternoon That ironically freezes and sunburns my fingers and cheeks I am keen on examining Ice crystal formations On cracked window pains In refracted light that I am sure I have Examined before How would they How could they Know that No two snowflakes Are alike but lacking in The imagination of a summer Snowstorm waiting for Another winter to return and Continue Snowflake research What if the gathering summer storms have been forming forever on the far Horizon in a warmer climate With monogrammed thunder and Autographed lightening designed Long before we were born There is only sad romance in A freezing rain no matter When or where it falls What if it never snows again
