Dust motes are quite beautiful,
if only I stop and watch.
I had nothing better to do just now,
so, I watched them, just because.
You may not have noticed —
I know I did not,
but they don’t just fall,
And there’s much to learn
from a speck of dust,
which took me by surprise.
You see, we are all just specks of dust
who eventually also will fall.
But taking the time to open our eyes,
and to notice our fellow dust motes,
I think we will see that quite often, we rise.
And does that not give the world hope?
Look deeply, my friend,
at all that might be,
right there, just in front of you, here.
The world’s full of magic and beauty and light.
The world’s full of wonder and hope.
And it’s there in those small acts that keep love afloat.
And it’s there right inside you, and inside of me.
If we just take the time and the care just to see,
there are sparks of light rising in every dust mote.
