Snowflakes






                                                                           
Snowflakes fall
covering
a black table

People walk past
fast
missing 
the cluster 
of crystals
shooting wonder 
into my veins
better than 
a caffeine hit in
the latte I came for

frozen ornaments
of falling grace
heap up 
in front of me
absorbing the bruised
blackness with
white light 

they land silent
delicate
frozen still
on my shoulders
others 
cling to my hair
kiss my face
whisper in my 
lashes

see 
and 
love 
what 
see

He likes it too 

that
do

Beautiful, Kathleen. I especially like "frozen ornaments / of falling grace" and how you describe the snowflakes as they fall on shoulders, hair, face, lashes: strong visual image.

Very nice moment. I felt pulled into your private world. Snowflakes are wonderful works of art.
