Congregation of Flakes

Congregation of Flakes

by Linda Nelson

Blowing on the wind

Adrift falling in the sky

Floating endlessly to the ground

An upsweeping wind

Captures the drifting flake

Pulling it up higher

To fall once again

Through tree tops

Past bird nests empty for the winter

Bumping against dried brown leaves

With arches and points

One last gust of wind

Blows the floating, drifting flake

Against a boulder covered

In the fellow congregation of flakes

Why Do I Write

I write because…

There are stories to tell

Places to go

Things to do

People to meet

Experiences to be had

Events to share

A voice to be heard

Feelings to be felt

Worlds to be built

Fears to overcome

Battles to be fought

Spirits to be found

Lives to create

Romance to be found

Snowflakes of Water

Water makes a snowflake

Cold wind blows it from the sky

Dried tears of nature.

 

Nature’s print of snow

Across landscapes cast in white

white water silence.

 

Silence drifts water

Fields deep in winter snow caps

Mice scamper a trail.

 

Trailing footprints mark

moonbeams on a path of light

Snowflakes of water.
