Shedding Dust

The Twiglets Shedding Dust

The sky is shedding its dust,
wrapping it in ice crystals,
hexagonal  creations that fall
on the earth in a downy display
of delicate winter beauty.
Breath in the pristine air.

 

A snowflake begins when a tiny dust or pollen particle comes into contact with water vapor high in Earth’s atmosphere. http://geology.com/articles/snowflakes/
