hidden gem (poem)

freestocks-org-505570-unsplash

I said to the gem

surviving beneath the

season’s first sheath

of ice and snow,

“you are my favorite”

because the world walked

by and did not notice

you

.

I stopped

and noticed

your tenacity

insistence to live

and not die buried under

indifference of snow

and disinterested, distracted

fast-walkers, fast-talkers

.

I will look for you

because no one else is

.

you shine through a white shroud

of cold

.

you are beautiful,

breathing and glowing

in the middle of

the cold loneliness

of your life,

granting me

a bit of your hope

.

So I choose you,

unpretentious, unassuming

hidden snow-gem

visible reminder of hope

.

in spring you will thrive

when the burden and weight

of ice and snow

once again lift and

dissipate into summer

.

winter will not destroy you

I will look for you

those who are forgotten

are those who remember
