snow flake

Timing’s everything. The vapor rises

high in the sky, tossing to and fro,

then freezes, suddenly, and crystalizes

into a perfect flake of miraculous snow.

For countless miles, drifting east above

the world, whirling about in a swirling free-

for-all, appearing aimless, just like love,

but sensing, seeking out, its destiny.

Falling to where the two young skaters stand,

hand in hand, then flips and dips and whips

itself about to ever-so-gently land,

miracle, across her unkissed lips:

as he blocks the wind raging from the south,

leaning forward to kiss her lovely mouth.

literal and figurative
Literal and figurative

Figurative meaning is when the poem doesn’t come right out and say what the poem is about you have to use your background knowledge

Literal meaning is what the word in the poem are talking about.

Love

Snowflake

In the poem it is talking about a snowflake and the process it goes through, but the poem is really talking about love and how a relationship is like a snowflake it takes time to build up. They are the same because a snowflake eventually melts and its hard to keep a snowflake forever just like it is a relationship you have to work really hard to keep the relationship just like you would a snowflake. Just like snowflakes are all different just like love is for people.
