i saw my reflection in a snowflake today

by Kimberly Bare

flawless beauty
for a moment

by the warmth of breath
and left

a glistening reminder
of what once

very intriguing and fleeting but precious.

Lovely poem. A beautiful comparison between the snowflake and the speaker. This piece has a very thoughtful and 'reflective' tone that links the subject to the title. The reader is also left a little heartbroken at the idea of momentary flawless beauty and it's "glistening reminder of what once was" flawless and beautiful in yourself. Very nice work Kimberly, I really liked this so much. :-)
