Crystal Teardrops and Scattered Poems

Yes, scattered would be right.

What word is this that sounds more like a sound than a word?

And why is this art but not something of greater effort, greater skill?

But also, I understand. And I’m grateful for those who buck against the rules of Puritans.

Such a relief to know my expression is valid and acknowledged even through those I’ve never met.

Seems the people you want to emulate are those who recommend you emulate no one.

Study the rules so you can go against them with an equal and opposite reaction.

The crystal teardrop still swirls with so many curious little snowflakes…
