Tiny Snowflakes

Tiny snowflakes
Light as the air
Fall through the gloom
Scratching and biting
Scaring birds off their branches
Surrounding trees and
Building on brick and metal and shingle and grass
Dancing with the slightest breeze
Inspired by silent music
Energized by lack of sunlight
Impervious to reason
Ready to cover the globe with tiny specks of white that
Are able to hide
