Short Life of a Snowflake

I am constantly on he lookout for accidental poetry in everyday life.

The middle line of the following haiku was uttered by the morning meteorologist on one of our local televisions stations the other day. I was reading the newspaper so I didn't catch the context, but the words came through loud and clear.

No one cares about
the short life of a snowflake
when they're shoveling.
