Search for meaning


By: Duane L. Herrmann

snow falling

Each perfect star –
six points
miniature perfection
uncreateable by hands
multitudinous abundance
and every one unique,
absorbs all sound
as they float down
blanketing the sounds
and ground;
a presence here today
and melt tomorrow.
To stand in snowfall
is to stand in silence,
hushed the world
and be in awe
of this:
winter’s miracle.
