Poem: Snowfall (tanka in 3 stanzas) + Hello Korea video

I like the Youtube channel, Hello Korea which allows a glimpse into living in South Korea. The creator of the channel walks around the city and countryside and films beautiful ambient scenes of rain and snowfall. I love the graceful style of traditional Korean homes, love the tiled and peaked rooftops and the sliding doorways. I wish I could live in a traditional Korean home.

Watching snow falling 
Remembering my mother
Smiling in silence
Through the sliding glass window
At the marvel of crystals.

Intricate sparkles
Falling like seeds from a cloud
Water light marvel
My frozen moment with her
Photographic time capsule.
