Snowbodies

Are snowflakes depressed?

Jumping from the sky to crash into the earth

Do they see their lives flash before their eyes?

Evaporating from parents… holding on to friends in the night skies…

Do flakes enjoy the fall?

Feel the thrill of seeing it all go by so fast.

Do they cherish their moments together in the sky?

Do they have communities?

Hang out in Nimbostratus and play cards waiting for the chance to dive…

Do they get mad at the first jumper for being so brave?

Does that lone cluster of crystal know its fate…

Falling through the atmosphere and ending up in some tree…

On the ground melting… on some homeless guys jacket…

Or does that flake dare to believe

Dive with confidence…

Know about the children awaiting his arrival with hopes of the years first snow day…

Does that first flake ever suffer anxiety?

Wonder if anyone will notice its presence…

Will its friends follow suit, or continue to blow in the wind…

Like the flaky folk they are…

Do snowflakes ever question their purpose?

Sit in the waiting room and talk about life after condensation…

What it would look like if for one day they decided to stick together…

Cause a snowy revolution…

Jump at the same time and create a blanket of frosted beauty…

Are the disappointed when the plan falls through

Because some of them are always late…

Do they hope to see each other in the after life?

Melt assured that the sewer will hold family reunions…

Get excited when they see their friends on the ground

awaiting their arrival…

Pray for a safe landing…

Fall into the grasp of cousins that they never knew

…but feel happy to not be alone…

Do snowflakes fall in love…?
