In the beginning
When God conjured up the Earth
Something was missing

But what could it be?
God scratched His head in thought and
White flakes descended

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Oh this is a nice combination of the two. I like it. And I like it even more because it reminds me of winter and snow and how much I love it all. I love the fact that the poem says so boldy that without snow "something was missing" This is a poem quite near to my heart.

This double haiku is a spin off of "How the Clouds Formed" and "Divine Dandruff."
