Snow

Tue, 10/30/2018 - 13:21 -- MoJo97

Thick feathers protecting soft down

Feathers muddy brown reflecting sunlight

Sky’s scent absorbed in flight

Piercing eyes knowing secrets

Eggs in unstable nested in an unstable world

 

I fly through the water

Gills and all

The sand below breaking my fall

My slick scales guiding me far

Dreary-mouthed and cold-blooded

 

So bright

Tiny white lights

Harmlessly floating down the dark sky

Each one intricate

As we know, as we’re told, it snows
