Assembly Required

No snow where I now live, but lots of snow in my childhood and many a snowman was created

snowman

Snowmen arrive unpretentious, unassembled

In millions of small iridescent snowflakes

Abstracted snow version of man, of his life

Waiting to be created by your hands

Seeking out your design, your vision

The magic inside you, that glowing ember of life

Pressed into each snowball breathes life into him

About jasterling

One part of my life is in the science of anthropology and archaeology where I did comparative work. My other life that I am now pursuing is writing along the lines of fantasy/sci fi fictional writing as my one way to stay sane in this other insane world. Please enjoy the selections you will find in my blog.
