Home / Dust


Floating imperceptibly
around in air -
tiny particles of dust
settle on surfaces
marring their beauty.

"You are dust!"...what a jarring phrase!
This earthly body, this particle
of creation will one day be changed-
yes, transformed!

No longer in time and space
familiar now.
But changed to eternal life
glowing in God's LOVE,
radiating, singing, celebrating
with creation - transformed!
