Precipitation

By Kylie L.

Grade 8

 

Snowflakes are soft and delicate

wandering aimlessly through the air.

They are peaceful; but purposeless

warm and happy, but also passionless and bitter.

One original and odd snowflake at a time

combining with millions of others,

all coating the once dewy lawn

in a chaotic dance that ends calmly and orderly

in a blanket of white.

                           ~

Ice is cruel and unforgiving.

A harsh sheet of heavy frozen water

laying still on a concrete sidewalk.

Until

 it

isn’t.

Slowly the ice turns to a puddle;

Leaving all and any clues that it was even there.
