This poem is by Aaron J. Balko

Snowfall (1992)

Each microscopic glass strand
of rigid silk, bound by
the wind, grabbed up
by the earth.
Swirling like waters.
Milky stars reflected
in the moon.
Fragile works, destroyed
by the softest caress
of any not timeless.
How quickly
vast, perfect martyr
by children-
grabbing up the beauty
they can not hold.
joy. Never
