Snowflake and the time traveller

Snowfall and the time traveller – artwork ยฉ Eva van Beek 2018

She lifted her head and noticed the clouds
bringing snowflakes from the East.

And while an old song was playing
she thought, with a certain amazement,
that snowflakes had always been dancing
exactly the same,

year come,
year gone.

She was taken back to these once upon
excitements and longings
to a time where snowflakes
were crystals of promise
of a world still unmapped.

And while she listened to the old song playing
she realised, with a certain nostalgia,
that she had been travelling
from snowfall to snowfall
forgetting about childhood’s promise.

She now had arrived at the country of duty
in a place where snowflakes
were drops of frozen water
with no chance of survival

But now, while the snowflakes were tumbling
they seemed to remind her
that they’d always been dancing
and will be dancing

people come,
people gone

and that they were hers to seize.



    1. Oh, you are still around! That’s nice! I am not always here, but often enough to be happy to encounter those who have been here from the beginning with me. Glad you are still around ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. You’re very welcome! I always wish I could split my time better and stay in touch with creative people like you. It helps motivate me! Take care of yourself! xo ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’•

      2. Aww that is so sweet, me too, often life takes over and I do not have time for much. But Iโ€™m always happy to find you here, when I do have time ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•

  1. Magical, Eva! You inspire me to go looking for my own creativity which has been on a lengthy diving adventure. Time for it to come home! ๐Ÿ˜‡

    1. Thank you, yes, creativity is one of those things; it needs to be fed otherwise it kind of dies of negligence ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน

40 'fore Forty

I'm on a life changing journey to 40. There will be ups, there will be downs. I'm like a roller coaster but with more agoraphobia.
