Snowflake Kisses : Verse 16

It feels like this fourth stanza and these four lines went by in the blink of an eye!

What could the 16th verse of Snowflake Kisses be referring to?

If you haven’t read the beginning of the poem, you might think of a gentle blink as describing a person who closes and opens their eyes quickly but gently – as in a kind and thoughtful gesture.

Albeit not entirely incorrect, that is just one interpretation based on the idea of the word “blink” referring to an action coming from a person.

Now, if you have read the beginning of this poem, you might wonder:

Is this a twinkling blinking star?

Or is this a twinkling blinking snowflake gently falling from the sky?

I have to say, even I often debate the meaning of these lines, even though I wrote them myself! However, there was a very specific reason why I wrote this line, and it had to do with time. Time, as in “with the blink of an eye”. An expression meaning how quickly time passes by.


Four stanzas in and only two blocks to go!
