We come and we go
 And in between,
 We shine;
 Motes in a sunbeam.

  1. Oh, my! One of 'those' posts! I got a beauty of a one years ago after I revealed that in my childhood I once poured boiling water into my goldfish bowl to 'warm it up' - but of course, I'd killed it!

    My commenter, in about 20 verses, was making sure I knew I was gonna roast in the pits of Hell for doing so!

    Your post, Stafford, is delightful. There really is a beauty in dust!

    1. Well, at least your commenter was 'on message', as they say.

    2. Sorry, all including Steve. I do appreciate and even welcome comment that are at odds with my opinions, but Steve, you were totally off topic and you abused my blogspace so I deleted both 'comments'.

  2. Succinct, splendid, stellar :-)

  3. Just simple and beautiful, no more words necessary.
