Cold snowdrops fall
Land with a soft plop
On the very top
Of red knitted head

Before tumbling
Fumbling
Mumbling
Before the landing

On upturned nose
In a prayers pose
As beautiful flakes
Stake a claim

Reabsorbs
Into parched flesh
Cleanly mesh
Spirit with mind

A reminder where life
Is surely kind
With no need to rewind
But simply breathe
Leave the pain behind
