In their lifetime,

     they glisten and sparkle,

               stick and create,

                    plummet and fall.


They’re so beautiful,

           and yet we pay them no attention.


It must be nice to be snow in California.

             Few and far between.

             But an honor.

To be so wonderful that almost everyone comes out to see you.

Instead of stepping on you, they pick you up and stare in fascination.


Why can’t I be California snow?

           Instead of just me.


Stepped on and crushed.


Unnoticed and only acknowledged by two words…

“It’s snowing.”
