White flurries fell from the sky.
Each speck distinctly cut.
Beautiful like crystal glass.
Swirling, dancing with the wind,
they descended from the heavens.
Pristine and glistening,
They blanketed the world below.
A white fluffy covering
Starkly contrasting with the dark night sky.
Shards of freedom,
Distinct to the winter season.
A current of wind passed through,
Throwing them this way and that.
A step forward.
A step back.
A repeating swaying motion
Adorned with gentle turns
Swiveling through the air,
They travelled with grace,
Hand in hand,
Dancing with invisible partners.
One by one, they dropped from above,
Gliding in a uniform step,
As though the wind’s whisper
Held them captive,
Mesmerizing and compelling them
Inducing one step after the next
Then just as quickly as they joined the wind,
They swapped partners,
Coming to a rest on the hard surface.
Only to repeat their waltz again,
When the snow fell once more.
