A Snowflake (Tritina)


When the wonder of a hexagon binds
I am caught by the very bright beauty
of a tiny white snowflake that glitters,

that forms a unique pattern that glitters
of which the core intimately binds
with a own texture, sparkle and beauty

that sticks around a grain of dust in beauty
as falling snow that in the air glitter
when water vapour as ice crystals binds;

where it binds with beauty, while it glitters.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
