A Spring Snow Storm
I saw one today,
As a Tidal Basin I strolled
A still Sunday in May

Most flakes would melt
At sixty degrees,
Yet, these beauties danced
In warm tepid breeze

Oddly, never falling
Completely to ground,
Seemingly suspended in air
Floating quietly around

Many gazed, stunned by this splendor
As each flake persistently clung,
From cherry limbs of trees
Some matured, some newly young

God alone imparts such glory
Drawing masses to marvel wondrous deeds,
Their beauty brings tears to startled eyes
And non-believers to bended knees.

Never thought of the spring snowstorms in the poetic way you have written...but I love it!

I like the moment captured in all its miraculous mystery. I live in South Georgia where it has only snowed once and this reminds me of the first time I ever saw snow for Christmas. It was like catching the lotto and it actually didn't taste bad. Ofcourse we had to eat it to see if snow was all that! I'll have to say it was. Perhaps we too are like snow. Products of the storms of life that still manage to mantain our shape, our beauty, who we really are even when we fall to the ground. Nice Write Sista & Keep Blossuming!

The master of the universe. God awes minute by minute. Your poem relates another, beautiful, awe inspiring display he orchestrated. "Suspended in air, floating around". It gives me visions of feathers from angel's wings. Beautiful poem. Another of your most worthy thougts, selflessy shared. Thank you. Jon Michael Willey
