Snowflakes can amuse or annoy, depending on who's narrating and the audience.


The Perilous Practices of Poetry and Personifying Snowflakes
(and Alliteration)

Snowflakes *Snow1* *Snow4*
from yesterday's flurries
                      flock
          skitter
Vivacious, wild troops reforming
          disbanding
                        rejoining
in flowing concentric patterns away from me
faster than I dare drive
visor down
with the milky, orange lamp glaring
daring me
dimmed and sliced into spotty, pulsing rays
by disrobed, unruly masts.

As I navigate the obstacles to my visual delight,
my co-pilot pleads not make a poem of this moment
on his ride to school.
