After E.E.

February 20, 2016


After E.E.

Cummings wrote of one
as this snowflake alighting
upon a gravestone.
My one
will more likely be
a flake of ash
and whether it ends up on a gravestone
will be all one
to me, but oh let it
alight first, let there be



Draft poem for the wonderful Kerry O’ Connor’s micro-poetry prompt on With Real Toads, with special focus on E.E. Cummings poem “one this snowflake.”  Photo is mine;  all rights reserved (and also to poem, of course.)  Thanks!
