A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver

No two snowflakes are the same...


A dark mood 
some may call it
they would be correct
yet blind to the depths
but you...
you see clearly
holding me tight
your strength
is the only light
I know
you are the sun
when I fear 
imminent snow
for it will cascade soon
pure and driven with purpose
as I fall into the brightness of it all
searching for footsteps no longer there
remembering snowmen built without a care
strange how the fingers still feel the cold
I haven't worn gloves since

sometimes we long to feel - anything. memories can be born anywhere and live in us no matter what triggers. so we hold tight and revisit at will - 'tis the beauty of going "gloveless" ...

This is amazingly imaginative! Love the way the intensity seems to build as one reads along & also the casual word play & scattered rhymes. Good use of contrasts, too. Your message is captivating! Fondly, Margie

Very nice work Poppy. Quite haunting in some ways. I very much like the way yours follow and the pictures they help me to make. Like Andrew, I've gone back about 3 times to the final line! I've decided not to trey and understand it but instead just enjoy the feel of it.

I hate auto correct!!! I like the way your [space] words flow ...
as is no two moments are the same Poppy. Interesting write, had to read several times because of the last line. I felt not wearing gloves was really resigning to the fact that this moment would not be repeated! I like this write!

Hello dear Poppy. I liked this poem.
"I know
you are the sun
when I fear
imminent snow"
The above lines. So good. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

Snowflakes are unique and miraculous in shape and design. Humans are also that. We have to be driven with purpose, with love and with strength. You said it all...

love the the feelings of this----those close friends who have been with us so many years...the give and take, being there for the bad times as well as the good...yes, they let us take the gloves off---the bitter cold times, not so bitter...the heart not so cold...
because of them.
