The sun plays hide-and-go-seek on a midwinter's afternoon,
Darting constantly towards the next available cloud.
Shielded.
Beside my intermittent shadow flutter my companions,
Guided by the ever-changing, blustery gusts.
The snowflakes follow me home.

Windy, wafting whispers winding through dormant branches,
I hold my breath and count to ten to ignore their murmurs.
Gossiping.
Hazy February clouds conceal indistinct peeps.
Should nobody else join me,
The snowflakes follow me home.

As I pass through the threshold and traipse across the floor,
Legs chilled and wavering over creaky wooden planks.
Weary.
But I glimpse once more, out through tempered glass panes,
Reassured and reveling in the knowledge,
The snowflakes follow me home.

Thought about this while walking home in a snowstorm.

People should be a little bit brighter
A little bit happier, don't be a miser.

Why is everyone so quick to anger,
So scared of danger and sick on paper.
Get a life, learn to smile you fakers.
Nothing in this world is gonna make it safer.

Misery loves company trust me it's ugly.
They came to be lovely til their feelings need cuddling.
Coddling is more like it, insulating even.
They don't realize they're insinuating treason.

Inciting some violence by some violet snowflakes.
Protesting the silence with science and show dates.

Our heroes reborn, a new purpose and will.
All zeroes now scorned by the true service of skill.

As I gaze upon this white blanket of snow
I realize that forever there will be
so very much I do not know--
but one thing I do know beyond any doubt
is that someday when my world ends
you will forever hold and carry my heart about
and keep it safe, tucked inside with yours too
and our love, our warmth for one another
will forever live on just as the snowflakes do--
for even though they'll melt
and someday fade away
they'll reform again
some fine cold, winter's day
and when the snowflakes fall down to you
my heart will be embedded in them
and my love will be forever true...
(just as I know your love will forever be
with me too)

In the night the once empty, cold world turned into a white paradise.
the snowflakes are still falling down,
from its once owner -
the dark grey gloomy sky.
just to bring the feeling of pure
happiness  down to earth.
weightless, slowly and gently falling.
I can't stop staring at them,
they fall so peacefully and they reminded me of myself, especially when I fell for you.
I couldn't see it coming, and I had no idea what would happen after I fall,
but I couldn't help myself,
all I knew was that I will leave in some kind of way, a tiny imprint of myself on your beautiful soft skin, so that you would think of me whenever a snowflake crosses your way, because snow is rare,
just like me, and you'll notice that,
when I - leave.

- I know it's not your fault that you do not notice how special I actually am, you're still hurting but one day you will and maybe you would give me a chance when I already left.

Your kisses
are snowflakes
that fall on my skin
like delicate lace
and slowly melt
as my passion
heats
for
more

The finest tune plays,
Through December streets -
A girl’s eyes twinkle;
Amidst the snow’s velvet sheets.

And if every heart was her snow?
They would drift in grace -
For no snowflake;
Ever falls in the wrong place.

White Lips,
Pale Face,
Breathing in Snowflakes..

Peeking in to a dream,
an enchanted soldier stood resolute--the exaggerated jaw.
A tousled head and wide eyes saw
a graceful lady's brise' to a snowflake's sound;
an eager body warmed by feather down
with curious feet and hands
climbed over a frosted edge into a wonderland.
Passion and purity waltzed to tell a tale,
foretold a longing heart, a face as pale.
A single flake fused to a blushing cheek.
Imagination stirred whimsy, the gift.
Unwrapping it with tender fingertips then a smile,
there--was the present for a little while.
Dreaming dreams that only romantics dreamt. (drehmt)
A hopeful child beheld the joy only seeker's slept.

The snowflakes danced around us,
Innocently we danced with them,
And as flowers in the spring we blossomed.
Bathing in the sweet shine of the summer evening.
Slowly we fell with the autumn leaves, dying, decaying, rotting.
And eventually the snow melted,
And with it, melted all laughter, joy, purity, happiness and love.
Gone.

Fall little snowflakes, fall
Drift gentle toward the earth
Melt on small noses
Be the cause of big smiles

Fall little snowflakes, fall
Plummet cold and fragile
Turn those noses red
Be the cause of cold arms

Fall little snowflakes, fall
Crash into the cold hard ground
The people will hate you
Be crushed by heavy boots

Fall little snowflakes, fall
You think you're beautiful now
But people will hurt you
Be killed by their words

Fall little snowflakes, fall
You'll soon be killed by this terrible world
