Snowflakes

snowflakemacro

Snowflakes soft as satin

swear solidarity,

a friendship forged on

likeness,

similarity,

hands which grip

relationship

with intent.

None are rejected

based on colour,

shape,

size;

all fall equally

under the siren-call of

gravity.

All strike earth

with a

whisper.

The Great Equalizer

Pompous pines and smug cedars,

set aside superiority –

last night,

God released the Frost Fairies,

those celestial ladies-in-waiting

whose expertise is festal fashion;

today,

even the Ugly Ducklings

are Cinderellas,

even the weeds are winsome

in their fanciful finery.

The Great Equalizer,

frost paints all with the same brush –

seedling and signpost,

lilac and lantern,

thorn and thicket,

grass and grapevine;

 all are exquisitely,

royally dressed

for the Ball.
