As Dust Dances

As Dust Dances

A Poem by Sarah Conder

Your slumbering form lies peacefully,

Cradled in the stupor of your own dream world

Which the gentle fluttering of your eyelids

Hasten to reveal.

I observe the steady rise and fall of your chest;

Your featherlike breathing as soft as the down

Upon which you rest your head.

A pale glimmering of the Early Morning’s

Incandescence filters through the narrow

Opening between the curtains.

She illumines your soft, opalescent skin and

Ignites the floating specks of dust that dance and sway

In noiseless reverie. They sparkle like a

Thousand infinitesimal suns, rising towards the heavens,

Silent and Trance-like.

Whilst you, my dear, sleep on through the earth’s music,

Quite undisturbed.

Thank you so much!
Beautiful language here! There's much more to a speck of dust than what most people consider. You made it a mystical presence. Those charming nuances about us are the gems within each and every moment making life worth living.
