A Snowflake (Tritina)


When the wonder of a hexagon binds
I am caught by the very bright beauty
of a tiny white snowflake that glitters,

that forms a unique pattern that glitters
of which the core intimately binds
with a own texture, sparkle and beauty

that sticks around a grain of dust in beauty
as falling snow that in the air glitter
when water vapour as ice crystals binds;

where it binds with beauty, while it glitters.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
