You don’t see us.

Why would you? We are tiny amidst the mountains and snow.

We were once part of them, frozen in time and part of an enormous mass

It was comforting to be secure, no one dared defy us.


But then the sun came and pierced our togetherness

Thawed and broken, we changed states

As solid turned to liquid, we bid our mountain good-bye

Time to melt, time to go.


You don’t see us but we are there

Made of molecules which are made of atoms which are made of protons,neutrons and electrons

We are part of an infinity of greatness and smallness

Falling, falling, falling.
