Snow

I am happy to have lived

this day.  There were ups.

Then there were downs.

Why can’t people get along?

Why are we bothering our

neighbors?  Bumping into

the next snowflake is

an impossibility in nature–

until you hit the ground.

Otherwise, everyone leaves

everyone else, alone.

There’s lots of air.

Let’s not all crowd into

the same stream of it

while falling,

destined to become a snow-

man if we’re lucky,

or simply to live on

the bough of a fir

in the forest, adding

to the beauty of

the natural world.
