Poetry Day: Catching Snowflakes

Yahoo Image Search

(Only point I want to make is that I made sure my son was okay and warm before I wrote this poem.)

The child can barely walk

Toddler legs still growing

Unable to find footing

But strong enough to move

Following the falling crystals

With an open mouth

Tongue stretching for a taste

Of crisp and chilly snow

At times he stops his chase

Bending down for easy prey

Letting excitement push him down

To the point of no return

Little face embraced by snow

A shock of bitter pain

Rushing to the warmth of home

Still chewing on his mouthful of snow

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
