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, exalting spring hope.

    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

    Even twins have certain differences. Nice use of an illustration Connie. As far as unity among men...

    Such a lovely, uplifting poem, Connie. I like the way you compare humans to the snowflakes. Indeed, each is unique. And it's hope that springs in the last verse when the flowers appear and color our landscape. (Like the photo you chose too!) Hugs, Carolyn

    Connie, I agree we can learn from each other's differences! Love the message and the clever way you compared snowflakes to the human race. Congratulations on POTD. :)

    Hi Connie! The first stanza is beautifully descriptive of fluttering snowflakes; it runs so smoothly that even rhyme could not keep out of it:) Next comes the apt comparison between these same snowflakes and human beings, based on uniqueness. The end stanza is both restful and rejuvenating. #7 A most lovely poem worthy of POTD. ~ Regards // paul
