He shared this poem yesterday via twitter, I love it!
Snow in Idaho
~by Steve Denehan
We are told that no two snowflakes are alike
we accept this without question
but perhaps there is a snowflake falling
the mirror of one falling in Idaho
no one is keeping tabs
as far as I know
when this poem began to crystallise
I assumed that it was a snowflake
a collection of words and letters frozen
in perfect uniqueness
but for all I know
there is someone in Iran
or on a train in Sudan
exactly what I write
as I write it
the words will go the way of the snowflakes
landing on the recesses of your mind

Reading Snow in Idaho made me curious so I tweeted in response…
Does anyone take fingerprints of snowflakes? ~what if .. there’s snow fakes? 😀
Steve’s website has more poems, and links to buy his books.

Here’s a couple of interesting cacti photos.
The white spirals – they be like fake snow!
