strange weather poem #7

 oddest bit of weather yesterday so odd
it was mentioned on the local news mild
out sun yet it was suddenly snowing and
no ordinary snow – evenly spaced, blue
between, and no ordinary flakes either
but snow pancakes big as silver dollars
they didn’t drift down hither thither nor
rapidly either a steady near-rapid pace
I haven’t even the words for it maybe
like big white polka dots on a dark blue
dress the speed and size and pacing all
combined they were divided like domino
dots they came down for about ten minutes
then it was over no wind most missed it
but when I saw the strange snow through
the window I dropped my project and ran
outside they were not snowball shaped either
but flat and when they plopped on the walk
they melted and then it was over ten minutes
