The Magic of Snowflakes and Diamonds

 
 
 

I take a rather slow

move

toward the magic of the snow



My fascination -

the frozen and crystalline state

of water that falls as precipitation



Having no clear idea of a crystal

or crystalline solid

or the process of

          crystal growth or crystallization

or solidification



However-

clearly craving for a sight

         of crystal twins! those that are often

symmetrically intergrown

          they just grow on me



l marvel at common crystals like

snowflakes

diamonds

          and table salt
It would be cool if l went more into
a world inside the flake
a new world
a place that is essentially
warmer than we imagine

Oh what magic!

I do like the last verse. I think that your poem is better performed than read.
