    Description:
       This is just one of my obsessive ramblings brought on by too much caffeine, boredom, avoidance-behavior (writing things like this instead of doing something of value or necessity) and a primo example of how my thoughts drive me crazy sometimes because they JUST WON'T SHUT UP!

    dotsSnowflake DNA?dots
    -------------------------------------------


    How do they know no two snowflakes are alike?
    Did they perform some kind of analytical test
    In a sterile scientific laboratory
    And create hypothetical snowflakes
    To test their theory?
    Are snowflakes genetically predisposed
    To individuality
    Like a person or a plant or an animal
    With it's specific DNA?
    Or do they just ASSUME
    That all are different somehow?
    And how did they study these snowflakes?
    Did they keep the room at ideal temperature
    Which would prevent these individual flakes
    From melting under their microscopes?
    And how did they separate the individual flakes
    From the rest of the snow?
    And what if these laboratory-reproduced snowflakes
    Are dissimilar in nature
    To natural snowflakes?
    Would that affect their hypothesis?
    And how big is a snowflake, really?
    Some are very small...just crystals, really
    Would these be more accurately described as
    Snow crystals rather than snowflakes?
    And some are huge and fluffy
    Yet perhaps these are merely a cluster
    Of several small snowflakes melting together
    Would this then still be considered a snowflake
    Or merely a snow cluster?
    If that were the case
    Perhaps it should not be considered snowfall
    It should be considered snowflake fall
    Or snowflake cluster fall
    Or snowflake crystal fall
    And why do we call snow piled at the side of the road a snowbank?
    Are we saving the snow for something
    Like money in a bank?
    Does it have some value to us to have this
    Huge pile of snow crystal/flake/clusters
    Sitting on our curbs
    Until the first spring rain
    Turns them into slush and mud?

    But I digress...

      Hi, This brought out some of the cold hard facts about our lovely frozen friends. You may have just drifted into to many chilling thoughts. A great thesis, that thaws the emotions, and yet brings on a huge brain-freeze.
    I remember as a child, my bedroom windows would frost over completely. What a dazzeling display of art work left by Frosty the Snowman (I think ). What I remember is looking for similarities in each pane and finding them. Although the panes as a whole were different.
    I shall think of YOU, on the next Squall,
    and that 'Will be Different'.

      This poem was great. Very billy connoly-esk
    I found the snowbank part unesacary because the whole poem up to that point was about snow flakes, but that is just me. However, a great work nonetheless.

      This is funny...I hope that is okay..it just struck me that way. You have brought some very good points to the table..about snowflakes.... Yet, to me...the snowbanks..are not like money...I think snowbanks are more important.
