Snowflakes Sunlight glistens off crystal snowflakes As they float and flutter through the sky Like butterflies in their freedom of flight, Never knowing where they might alight. They leave us awestruck as they join Together turning the landscape white. Closer view reveals no two are alike. In this way, we as tender human beings Have much in common with snowflakes. We treasure our freedom, we are each unique, And there is much beauty as we unite as an All encompassing gift to each other Bonded by the strength of coming together. Winter is a time of rest and rejuvenation, A time to prepare for rebirth in the coming spring As the first bulbs push their way through the Snow covered ground, slowly rising up in a blaze Of glorious colors, in beauty they exalt spring hope. 2-23-22 Winter Love Poetry Contest~First Place~ Sponsored by: JCB Brul Poem of the Day February 25, 2017 Thank you Poetry Soup Team!

Thank you for your sweet visit and comments on my poem. It is good to see you here; I have been away for a long time. Your words capture the beauty of the one thing I like about winter - snow, but only while it is white and clean. Congratulations on your win; your writing is always beautiful.

I was away for many months after my husband died in July 29, 2020. I finally came back after several months until I lost my son from a stroke this past May 29, 2021. It is wonderful seeing you here and very nice to be back, poetry helps. Blessings xxoo

Aren't they such a gift from God Dave! Their scent and the way they brave the cold to appear. I hope your computer is fixed. Mine was freezing again and so frustrating...so I can relate. It is working fine now. Thank you....Blessings and Love, Connie

Such beautiful, profound words, expressing your love and sorrow at the passing over of your beloved wife. Your poem made me cry with you, tears of joy that her pain has ceased and mournful tears as you grieve. I offer you my love and prayers at this sad time. God Bless x

Wow, such mighty verse, so eloquently picturesque and cinematic, reminds me of Tchaikovsky's waltz of the snowflakes!
