Snowglints

Sunglints hitch a ride on snowflakes falling softly,
cause them to sparkle like earring-sized disco balls,
like lapel pins for brownies; crown jewels for a Clara crown.
       They
                 scatter
                           the
                                     ground
looking like a miniature goddess left her jewelry box unattended
and every fairy with mischievous hands and a magpie eye for bright
pilfered her box and showered her gems to the ground.
