Day 937: Winter/Spring Poem


I love this short and extremely sweet little poem. How it moves so subtly and swiftly from winter wonder to thoughts (and hopes) of spring. 


Winter Poem - Nikki Giovanni

once a snowflake fell
on my brow and i loved
it so much and i kissed
it and it was happy and called its cousins
and brothers and a web
of snow engulfed me then
i reached to love them all
and i squeezed them and they became
a spring rain and i stood perfectly
still and was a flower
