"Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all."- Emily Dickinson

Snow globe
A sphere of glass
Look into it
You shall see the past
Or present
Whichever it be
The glint of my reflection
Stares back at me
The image of me
On the edge
Of an entire world
So I can see
Something about its fragility
Makes me want to
Destroy the little city
Shatter glass
Against ground
So I can save
A drowning town
From flurries of snow
Rising Water
Being shaken around
The day the globe fell
A mirrored pool
With pieces of snow
Surrounded my feet
My proud reflection
faced me
I saved a despairing city
From its picturesque captivity
Mom rushed in to scold me
But I saved
An entire world
I say
Don’t move an inch
You might step
On glass
Was her reply
The moment stays with me
Though I may
Never understand why.
