All That I Am

October 13, 2010

I was once a fleck upon a snowflake

Floating freely from above

     I landed gently upon a sheet

    Of pure white snow at the mountains feet

Rays of heat turned me into that

Which quenches thirst in the lower flats

    As I entered a calming stream

    The does’ tonque took me into its seams

As I left upon its natural waste

The earth welcomed my lack of haste

    For ages the leaf became my seat

    Until the wind did take me to a beach

For years I mingled with grains of sand

Until the ocean took me from the land

    When spring drew near I did ascend

    To continue the circle that never ends  

                             Written for Monday Poetry Potluck.
