Fall, souls, like crystal snowflakes
Each unique yet very well
Blanket the earth alone alike
From great length just who can tell

She fell to the earth one day
To me she was fair and clean
Not like the dirty snowflakes
Throughout the field were seen

She was so fair yet so divine
Gently I touched her in my hand
And I could see inside her soul
To the beauty that shared the land

Holding her close the wind it ebbed
Every facet of her was clear
Melting between my fingers lost
Shed by God, He keeps her near

Walt...this is wonderful.  I'm still scratching around trying to find the words to meet this challenge and you have done so beautifully

Well done here Sir Walt... Perhaps it is the way I read it but it seems rather sad... as if the narrator had but a small time with this gift of Gods'. Still, very beautiful. I bow to you and yours.

Oh Walt....I too felt sad like Andrew Scott said....
As someone said though....better to have held her and lost her, than never to have held her at all.....I think there's a country song along that line.  Fabulous story you shared in this.  I smile at you...

Very touching, I enjoyed this!
