I couldn’t remember if I had posted this one before, so I entered a search on my home page, and as it turned out, I had not posted this particular one, but my search did bring up “Teardrops Of A Cold Heart” which was longer but eerily similar. So I feel that there must be something subliminal rolling around in my mind about snowflakes and teardrops. But, in any case, with the forecast calling for a flurry here and there, I give you the latest of the two.

     I pray that your Sunday is free of bad weather and of tears.





Snowflakes are the tears

of a cold-hearted soul,

not known for their joy

or their mirth.


Each one is distinct

from the other,

as they tumble and fall

to the earth.


There they await to be thawed

and be given

to a soul of more kindness

and worth.

    I will be honest here—can’t stand the thought of snow but your poem was lovely aside from the snow imagery. 🙂 I think we are safe from the evil snow for a bit longer. Keeping fingers crossed.
