And Night Forgives Day

Snowflakes unique
Come to rest
Upon pristine mountain peaks.

Melting under the weight of gravity
And a fear of the sun,

Through thousands of creekbeds
And rapid rivers they’ll run,

Many streams returning to
One ocean,
An ever-stretching sea
Of unchosen destiny.

Back on top,
As clouds prepared to drop,
Perfect crystals danced
Divine diamond spirals,
Each especially spun
By careful chemical choices.

Life always falls,
But death is forever
There to catch her.

Like the tears of the sky
Wiped dry by
The lifting light of the sun,
The dead will rise again
As morning shines,
To smile on faces familiar.

Light forgives dark,
and so night follows day.

The many become one.

The many.
