thoughts Collected… (reflecting on "Snowflake" a photo by MG)
By  RJ Heller

“Beauty revealed when tiny crystals form, so unique in size and shape, they collect in a magical presence … so too, the thoughts of each of us…”

Snowflakes dance and sing, float and
seek others, weary of travel, they rest.
Layer upon layer, they mingle and build, one after
the other, bare and naked, cold, until they find
each other, cling and collect as one, comfort
finding shape, function … finding home.


Thoughts dance and sing, no sleep for the weary
roll over and up, up, up … “out of bed you sleepy head”.
Layer upon layer, they mingle and build, one after
the other, full and clothed, warm, yet always
seeking others, agree and collect as one, content
finding shape, function … finding home.


Collected in the moment, both dream …
of whiteness, sheer perfection of color and light.
A pureness shared by both crystal and thought,
flake upon flake, thought upon thought, brothers
in a single instance, never to be replicated
only to be cherished, spontaneity and beauty.


Moments are all about snowflakes and thoughts
and of their language, pure and memorable.
Snowflakes dance, seek others, take shape … beauty
Thoughts dance, seek others, take shape … idea
Born of the wind and the cold, born from you and me,
They are collected for us….
