An ice crystal begins high in the clouds
As an extremely cold water droplet
Freezing onto a pollen or dust particle
As the ice crystal falls to the ground
Water vapor freezes onto the primary crystal
Building the six arms of the snowflake
No two alike as they plummet towards my open mouth
Where the new snowflake, the color of water
Melts-tasting of ozone and triumph!
