Silken Silhouette

by matthew s harris
(schwenksville, pennsylvania) where iz ma white car? where iz ma white car?

when blizzards rage and howling
arctic winds did blow
profuse precipitation packed Philadelphia
til white aery mountains did over flow

meteorological heft wrought pinkish glow
polygons pin wheeled and pirouetted
landscape imprint pure as driven snow
diminution of visual acuity

accrued from two score plus nineteen birthdays
still marvel at freeze-dried raindrops
reaction toward crystalline phenomena
continues to grow

kaleidoscope of multitudinous
hydrospheric blitz krieg terrestrial show
metaphor wrapped in supreme whiteness
from singular entities high to low

mother nature imbues testament
teaches to offer self for world to know
as corporeal of flesh and blood
we forget identity among human row

subtle riddle well hidden in molecule
two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen in tow
offer quiet sermon to cherish beliefs
and personal paradigms vis a vis status quo.
