‘Twas just a few summers ago

when snowflakes miraculously fell

unto my skin like a little solid raindrop

snowflakes should never fall in summer

but it did, that summer morning

from little snowflakes to snowfall

my dreams of building a snowman

did happen, on a summer morning

when snowflakes should never fall

but it did, that summer morning

snow and cold in summer, not ideal

but I built my first snowman, lovely

then the second one, cheerful

and then the third one, beautiful

finally, the fourth one could look like you

the forecast calls for near-zero temperatures and cool weather for the week, it was odd

but it did, snowflakes even fell that summer

and I built a snowman in May

totally and odd

just as you left, without saying goodbye

that summer morning when the

the sun should be shining and the days

should be hotter still you left,

as snowflakes fell that  summer morn’

 

 

 

 

 

P.S

In loving memory of my beloved father.

I Love you Gently as Snowflakes

I love you gently
as snowflakes tumble
through the air,
swirling and spiraling,
each taking
different paths to the ground
finding gloriously a special spot
transforming, creating
new beginnings

I love you gently
as snowflakes trickle
the ground
twirling and spinning
as I find my way
unto your heart defying thy gravity
melting in your arms softly
and affectionately

I love you gently as snowflakes

What if Snowflakes Don’t Fall in Winter?

What if snowflakes don’t fall in winter?
and fresh buds don’t bloom in spring?
or summer doesn’t need sunshine?
nor leaves don’t fall in autumn?

Will you remember how we used to be?

the love we shared gently
like snowflakes falling smoothly in winter out of thin air unannounced, unnoticed
unspoken yet blissful

the dreams we dream, hope we hope
like spring awakening the earth
bringing heaps of sunshine after
the cold, gloomy winter

the waves of laughter we gave out
like sunshine on a summer day
rhyming along as the birds singing
passionately hot, vibrant and crisp

the memories we created
like leaves falling flawlessly in the autumn breeze, with cooling temperatures and darkening nights

What if snowflakes don’t fall in winter?
and fresh buds don’t bloom in spring?
or summer doesn’t need sunshine?
nor leaves don’t fall in autumn?

Will you still love me tenderly?
