Like a Snowflake – A 55 Poem

The Form for All prompt at dVerse Poets Pub today, with Sam Peralta once again at the helm, is to write a poem of exatly 55 words. There’s always time for 55 words.  So here’s my Christmas 55.

Like a Snowflake

Like a single snowflake floating down from above
so like the others, but each unique, so the Son of God
came down to earth from heaven above
like us a tiny baby that grew into a man of God
but quite unique, one of a kind, a blessed gift of love
Immanuel, God with us

  3. Wonderful set of images–snowflake among many, baby among many, Jesus–people should be very careful of who and what they abuse. Best yet, work through love.

  8. What you write is challenging. Christ is the vine, remember? And we are branches. The stem is not a branch. Christ was God, in the being of a man. He was not a star among others, as people today perceive the sun as a star.

    • What you say is true, which is why I didn’t use a metaphor of vines and branches in my poem. He was fully man, just as we are, and so we are similar just as each snowflake is similar to others. But He was unique because though He was fully man, He was also fully God. Peace, Linda

    We all could do with a dose of Christ consciousness right about now, as the new pope is going to be allowed to visit Jerusalem, and the Middle East jahidists plot holiday mayhem; impressive use of the prompt; thanks.
