Snowflakes

December 3, 2009

Not slowly wrought, nor treasured for their form
In heaven, but by the blind self of storm
Spun off, each driven individual
Perfected in the moment of his fall.

–  Howard Nemerov

This is one of my favorite poems.  I’ve been saving it for today – the first snowfall of the winter (that will stick).  It is so beautiful here today.
