if not rare.

there are always vectors
and other values

if not measured
at least felt or experienced

at the boundary of ground:
imbalance and, therefore, movement.

the creation comes, then
with the condition of height and time:

eight stories up
suspended in a moment

binary values
of ones and zeroes—

just snow
or not snow—

no vectors of momentum
or spin

no description of unique shape
or crystalline order

just points to move between
floating to observe

as picking through pond lilies
or stars in the winter sky

there or not there
in this moment

the scalar nature of snow
