A Snowflake’s Point of View

A single point in the universe
From its reference frame
The Earth comes rushing up
But not directly
It lists and leans
Rolling in a galaxy-sized wind

When it lands
In the Earth’s embrace
The single point
Becomes a drift

Soaking dirt to mud
Watering the seeds
Of spring
