"Crafting Snowflakes" by Sierra July


"Snowflake" Watercolor on Paper
By J. Artemus Gordon
Crafting Snowflakes
Sierra July

Scissors and hole punch at the ready
One in either hand, she flew through cloud
Breath forming cold, forming ice, heavy
Snipped and clipped cut-outs, until snow fell
Generated geometric shapes,
No two alike; not one permanent

Poet's Notes: Besides writing and reading, doing art was one of the things I cherished growing up. From painting and drawing to cutting shapes (as in this poem) and building models out of Legos or play dough, art has always been a creative outlet for me. I consider writing an art too, of course, and put more time into it than in other crafts, thus this is an ode to my old pastimes--with a little fantasy added.
