They said way back then
When I was but a string of dreams
That the world was lacking in something.
I knew not what it could be.
But as I became more and more
And from air turned to snow
I thought just maybe, just maybe that I knew.

The air nipped and pulled and stretched at me.
The triangles shot out and sharpened.
Circles frosted and cracked over me.
I glistened in the sun as branches sprouted.

Air wrapped around me
Circling me in a tight embrace.
And I fluttered and I floated
And I glided through the air.

White and bright were my surroundings.
My being continued to stretch until I ached.
I again froze and cracked
Sunlight pierced through me
And I became a diamond.

I thought I could hear music.
It had a soft hum
Like waves on a shore and a choir of angels singing praise.

I began to spin slowly
As I reached out one last time.
I knew something was to happen
And soon it would occur.
And then as if it were a pillow
I was enveloped in a familiar feeling.

I watched as little dots twinkled like falling stars.
Their descent headed toward me.
Each was different but at the same time each so beautiful.
Is that what I look like? I thought. So strange in shape and form
So fragile and yet oh so elegant?

The world was lacking in beauty
And I was a snowflake
Sent to bring magic and peace for just a few seconds.
I would melt into my surroundings soon
Lost in body and in time.
And yet I wasn't sad.
Rather I was in awe
That while no one would remember me
There would not be one
Single little piece of ice
To ever flutter to the ground
That would ever
Look
Like
Me.
