    "Let It Snow"

    Unlike
    any other
    yet somewhat the same.
    Nestled
    in beauty
    adhered into glass,
    Suspended
    with awe
    in liquid and form,
    Projected
    and smooth
    resistant and crass.
    Untouched
    by the barer
    the scenery's fixed,
    entices
    the seer
    in all that surrounds.
    Grandeour
    reflections
    within a small sphere,
    Yet inhanced into beauty
    when turned
    upside down.

    Can you guess what the object is that that this poem is describing?



    Blessings
    Sally

    HEHE! - Very nicely done SALLY - I LOVE THE SNOW:

    Those lines (the entire poem really) = some really exquisite writing. Such a delicate AND simple thing... You've described snow vibrantly... Difficult, if you will :p **I couldn't resist LOL**

    Very nice! Thanx for sharing this poem!

    Jacquii.

    "Let it Snow"

    GREAT guesses guys! you're right of course "snow"... but where is it snowing?
    Here's some more clues:
    1. Adhered into glass.
    2. In liquid and form.
    3. Within a small sphere.
    4. Inhanced into beauty when turned upside down.

    Any more ideas?

    Blessing
    Sally

    Great guesses you too.
    Indeed a beautiful snow scene. However it was written about a "snow globe" when turned upside down then set upright the snow falls gently upon the scenery inside the water globe.

    Sally.......dang it.....I got here too late to post my answer. It is a great metaphor to the snowing ball. A glass that shows a miniature scene when turned upside down and back upright it snows. Very well done. I makes my day.

    Thanks Sartor,

    So sorry you didn't get the chance to post an answer. However, as wise as you are on metaphors, You probably had the answer while you read it. Am I right?

    Thanks to all of you who responded. :thanx:

    Blessings
