When you fantasize about being a snowflake.
I watched my Christmas cactus blooming in the window
In its glorious color of red for the season
In the background I watched it snowing outside
The biggest flakes I’d ever seen floating in the air
landing wherever the wind took them
I floated off mesmerized by the snow
Fantasizing I was one of those big flakes
The lights twinkled along the bushes and the house
Giving it that glow of ambiance the season brings
Embers crackled in the fire as I melted into a puddle on the floor.
