Cascading Snowflakes, by Ivor Steven

Cascading Snowflakes
by Ivor Steven

A morning blizzard of hailstones
Smothers my old frozen bones
Polarized, I am shivering head to spine
Chilling my chasms of hard lines

Daily coldness unwrapping
Mid-morning thawing, eventually happening
Melting, my eternal iceberg breaks
Into an avalanche of cascading snowflakes

Covering me in a white blanket of crystal firestones
Gradually warming my lonesome bones
Turning my purple blood into glowing red
Clearing heavy fogginess from my head.

  1. Reblogged this on Ivor.Plumber/Poet and commented:
    Surprise, Surprise !! The Red Wolf Journal has just published a “2nd” poem of mine, for their Fall Anthology, ‘My Dream Of You’ .. Now I am doubly grateful to the editors Irene and Tawnya accepting this piece too …

  2. Thank you for sharing this poem by Ivor! He is an amazing poet! His poems warm the heart, bring joy-tears to eyes, get brains thinking, teach us, encourage us, inspire us, and so much more!
