A Snowman Alone Poem by Soran M. H

A Snowman Alone

Rating: 5.0

One morning
before we wake up
the postman freezes
just before putting a letter
into the letterbox
No more will ever arrive

The apple falling from the tree
remains in the air
never reaching the ground

Time - such a bright bulb
Suddenly turns off

We have no last chance
to look at
the photos in our albums

Life's colour vanishes
into nothing

The snowman stays alone
in the garden
for all seasons
still motionless. Nothing to watch
no starlings landing on his shoulders
any more..

One morning we slip deep into our dreams
and do not come back.

I particularly liked the choice of title A Snowman Alone. Something so temporary and short-lived as a snowman left remaining in time. Great levels of poetry. Very much enjoyed.
