Little Souls

Snowflakes emerging from darkest skies

Their slow descending dance enchanting

Their pure, white unconditional grace

Gifted to wide upward looking eyes

Tickling my lashes and fingertips

I capsuled their beauty in time you see

Something inside just felt so very right

I imagined them to be little souls

Twirling through the night to check on us

To look after our sorrows

To enchant us with their beauty

If just for a second.

I like that thought!

  1. So beautiful. The words you have chosen really evoke the delicate and fragile transience of snowflakes. I don’t have snow where I live, but love this feeling fo snowflakes – and it is just as you describe. They are soulful, just like your poem. How nice to think that they are looking out for us.
