THE SNOWFLAKE

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Dec 07, 2017

Silently falling from 
dark laden skies
Swept on the wind
like white angry flies
Swooping and settling
and covering the town
Its weight on the cables
starts bringing them
down.

Roadways are blocked
by the deepest of drifts
Railways are stopped
and nobody shifts.
Gritters are out on the
road the next day
Dodging round cars 
that were left in the 
way.

More motorists try to
get out on the roads
Blocking the progress
of lorries with loads.
Before very long, the
jams are too great
More of the vehicles
are left to their fate.

Airports are closed
and passengers moan.
They can't fly away
or even go home.
The airport says sorry,
it's doing its best
So please have some 
patience and try to
rest.

Amazing how mighty
a snowflake can be
Disrupting life that
was once orderly.
A small piece of ice
which shows that it 
can
Bring instant chaos
to 'superior' man.
