Listening to every heart
Souls Like Crystal Snowflakes
[Challenge from DreamEvil]
Not so very long ago
during a midnight it chanced to snow
and early, around 3:00 a.m. or so,
I awoke to a glistening glow.
There was no sound, no apparent life,
but only in a fairy tale-like dream,
could I imagine souls like crystal snowflakes
come upon my scene.
For there was a sparkle all around
as the skies had cleared and the moon abound
forth, over the land covered white,
my crystal snowflake souls and I, alone in the night.
For each flake was an individual spirit
before it joined its companions white
and like my world, they all joined in
unity, to make things appear so right.
So may souls like crystal snowflakes
abound round you this year;
and keep in mind during summer;
that in rainbows they will appear.
