Poetic Discovery

A Winter Poem
once a snowflake fell
on my brow and i loved
it so much and i kissed
it and it was happy
 and called its cousins
 and brothers and a web
of snow engulfed me then
i reached to love them all
and i squeezed them 
 and they became
a spring rain
and i stood perfectly still
and was a flower.
