Remembering Mary Oliver

     "Still what I want in my life
       is to be willing
       to be dazzled--
       to cast aside the weight of facts

       and maybe even
       to float a little
       above this difficult world."
       --Mary Oliver, House of Light

Snowflakes play mischievously
Dancing in the wind. Some spin a waltz
Others a passionate tango, or the alluring cha cha cha
There's no conductor, nor unity
Each shows its own personality
No two snowflakes are identical
O, each one itself is enjoying and performing
The only dance of its lifetime

Who will be embraced by the earth -
Snow or rain or both
