A poem comparing the human heart, with its fragility and compassion, to a snowflake, often sharing many of the same characteristics.




The human heart is like a snowflake
With compassion, ever free
As each moment we are awake
We are bound in empathy
When we join to help a neighbor
Whose needs surpass our own
We shall find our gift of labor
Is the greatest glory known.


The gifts we give to another
Once our lives link, hand in hand
Are pleasures, like nothing other
When our deeds blanket the land
Just as the sunlight of winter
Often shines a lasting glow
Our hearts beam, when last we enter
Hope where once pain had bestowed.


These snowflakes are quite distinctive
But their common ground is clear
Their ambitions are instinctive
From the moment they appear
While solo, their means are shallow
When united, they shall be
Pristine splendor, ever hallowed
With glamour for all to see.


The human heart is like a snowflake
Whose compassion freely flows
Each moment when we are awake
Like a drift destined to grow
For despite life’s squally weather
Much promise can be instilled
When our hearts unite together
In a blanket of goodwill.

Jill, this is a rare piece of the connection man has to all of creation. Like the snowflake no two of us are totally alike, yet together we form one humanity. Great work.
