Snowflakes


Think of them, for a moment,
as fingertips of all the world’s dead,
seeking love in faces, hands,
and tongues.

Softly as their peace is borne,
we are among them.

Very unique perspective. Like the notion (maybe it is true)that energy is never gone. It just keeps transfering like trace evidence. In any case, I will think of this in snow.

William Michaelian said...

Glad this appeals to yours, Brad. Thank you!

A sweet communion, Monika.

It does, Robert, and the cats treat it as a big, beautiful ball of string.

Then don’t be surprised, Annie, if some of them turn into butterflies.

I'll never look at snowflakes the same way again! But then, I never do.

Jan said...

Another way that those that have passed on can still keep in "touch"...love it, William :)

William Michaelian said...

Because you are looking, Gabriella....

Thank you, Jan. It is a lovely thought indeed.

And now, I do understand why, when it is snowing, I always rise my face and look up there to the sky, and down in the soil, and around. And open wide my arms and smile. . . :) And why a snowy silent landscape, feels almost like crowded and covered with hope and life.

William Michaelian said...

Beautiful, Alberto. Thank you. It’s wonderful to hear your voice.

In winter i always think of the prints of bird steps in the snow, you're wonderful poem William. Now i also will think of this beautiful one. I thank you for that, it's comforting to remember these.

William Michaelian said...

Just as it’s comforting, Monica, to know they’re read and remembered by someone as kind and sensitive as you. Thank you.
