Snowflakes #Prose4T

By | December 19, 2013

There’s a definite anticipation in our house for snow this Christmas from T, it’s extremely unlikely that his wish will be fulfilled this year (or any other year).

His expectation is due to tradition and a lot of hope. He’s been singing Christmas carols at school with the mention of snow, the cards have been arriving with snowy scenes and it’s tradition isn’t it, our hope for a White Christmas.

So, today’s Prose4T hosted by Vicky at vevivos.com concerns snowflakes, something so pretty individually and collectively quite disruptive. It doesn’t stop my inner child wanting to throw snowballs and build snow creatures though.

Snowflakes

Snowflakes, symmetrical snowflakes,
Inexplicably round.
Snowflakes, falling snowflakes,
Tumbling from sky to ground.

Snowflakes, glistening snowflakes,
Try to catch on your tongue.
Snowflakes, melting snowflakes,
Sometimes so cold they felt like they’ve stung (you).

Snowflakes, now solid snowflakes,
Faster and faster they tumble.
Snowflakes, bigger snowflakes,
Time to build a snowman so proud but humble.

Snowflakes, pressed together snowflakes,
Taken on a new shape.
Snowflakes, moulded snowflakes,
Body and head rolled, time to finalise and rescrape.

Snowflakes, crisp white snowflakes,
Time for a snow fight.
Snowflakes, versatile snowflakes,
Gloves back on, coat zipped up tight.

Snowflakes, compact snowflakes,
Packed tightly into a ball.
Snowflakes, now icy snowflakes,
Thrown fast and tall.

Snowflakes, brr cold snowflakes!
Snow balls thrown, that snow goes everywhere!
Snowflakes, fast melting snowflakes,
Sticking to skin, clothes and hair.

Snowflakes, pretty snowflakes,
We’re back inside now with a warm drink.
Snowflakes, heavy snowflakes
What shall we do next? Time to thaw out and think…

There is something very special about snow isn’t there. It is a magical part of nature.

I wish we had had snow – but not so much that it made it impossible to travel. My Mum said she saw a few flakes tonight so the wish may still be granted! A lovely poem. Thank you so much for supporting Prose for Thought this year xx

You’re welcome Vicky and thank you for hosting 🙂 I’d definitely prefer snow to all these gusts. Hurry up Spring if they continue x
