The Last Snowflake

100_5379

Only a few flakes swirl now, meandering towards the earth

as winter loses its battle, green shoots stand at attention,

while in the silence, the sun pulls away

the clouds,

and the last snowflake

melts on the petal

of a daffodil.

In the Hush of Snowflakes

20180204_121624

The earth exhales wisps of breath, in the hush of snowflakes,

as peace descends in the wind, but lives deep within us too

in our own breath

as we look up

and taste the snow

on our lips.
