A Poem by Angelica Joy

Snow Bunting

it is negative degrees out,
as I, a freezing drop of cloud,
dance downward.
supersaturated air fashioning my
circular six arms
forming a symmetry similar to my mother's.

I saw her flying,
an elegant bird, with wings
of painted brown
piercing eyes, contrasting with
the white background

she chased the clouds,
as I chased gravity.

I thought you'd catch me

but the brittle ice crystals of my body
began to melt quicker
than I could miss you
