Message In The Snowflakes

Colleen Dillon

Uploaded .

I was having my share of PESS (post election stress syndrome) and headed to northern MN to shake it off and wrote this one while watching a beautiful quiet snowfall happen. I recorded it finally today on my little TASCAM that we often use around the coffee table.

Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope you enjoy the sentiment even though the recording is a bit rough.


Sitting inside with my winter blues
Watching the sky thicken
Clouding my view
When slowly from the heavens
A miracle falls
Millions of snowflakes
Unique like us all

This holiday time that holds us so dear
Should bring us together
At this time of year
Though different we are perfect
Like new fallen snow
That drops from the sky
And blankets below

There’s a message in the snowflakes
So beautiful and rare
When we see we are different
But love anyway
There is beauty beyond compare

I know I when I look at each tiny work of art
Each one so perfect they tug at my heart
I turn my eyes up –feel their kiss on my face
Each flake builds my hope for our tired human race

Can we be more like these tiny bits of ice
And cling to each other
And simply be nice
Like after the storm comes
A calm silent night
We can learn from these snowflakes
And be peaceful tonight

Happy New Year Colleen. Thank you, no I am not doing the journey but would love to. I'm mad about trains. I heard Darrin's music and could hear a train journey in my mind. x

I Don't want to sound like a broken record, but I like the simplicity of your first takes.
