Ode to a Snowflake

Work Text:

Ode to a Snowflake

You were never born, but rather, came into being
Born in the fullness of a soft, high cloud
In a crystalline mist so thick and all-encompassing
That you could be nothing less than perfect
Each facet of your structure so unique, so mesmerizing
That surely the entire world below could not help
But to behold you in wonder as you descended
And though multitudes may fall without notice
Despite their own perfections
Somehow I alone witnessed your journey from above
Watching your arrival in awe and amazement
You floated ever-closer, dazzling in your intricacy
I opened my mouth, and you landed on my tongue
Cool and wet, melting into the heat
And in that brief moment
Your purity became my own
And mine, yours
Never to be reclaimed
