The snowflake. Winter's Butterfly. My favorite shape. Ironic, really, since I absolutely detest cold weather. Still, I love snowflakes which is why a snowflake is part of my tattoo (see right). The cross is simple. It represents my faith. The snowflake represents the fragility of that faith should I attempt to go through this life on my own as well as the purity of Christ. There you go.
“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake...” ~Sir Francis Bacon

Cascading crystals dance a windblown waltz
intrinsically drifting downward to obscurity;
coldly conducted by whimsical accord to dance
in unique unity and the icy common conviction
of a wasteful demise thru jagged sting on skin.
