Distracted

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw

dancing dust motes
catch sunlight streaming
moving in time
to morning music
they boogie to
New Order
in their own lively
disorder
lifting spirits
revisiting magic

This feels so nostalgic and just paints the most beautiful picture. It reminds be of dust floating around windows and though each and every one of your poems are amazing, this might be my favorite. It feels so personal and feels like a memory. Thank you for writing this gorgeous piece.

All summer, with my big thirsty garden in the big heat around here, I awoke with a list of stuff that needed doing every day. October was still hot & the outdoor puttering went ahead full steam. Then we just got 3 frosty mornings & most of my garden shut down - bang! Now I have nothing more to do until spring when life starts to hum again. I look at all these wilted plants & try to figure out what to do today, but I end up becoming distracted, staring at some crumpled leaf or withered sprout, just like in your poem (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

that is the most magical view i have ever been inspired to see ... of dust ..and it is so common and relatable .. i have lain there on my bed in more comfort i can overcome and get up .. just watching those little mystical faerie dustings floating in such chaotic uniformity .. thanks for sharing Cherrie .. a very uplifting mini scene in motion

Something about this makes me think of a familiar place. Home. Watching dust settle in the sunlight through the windows bring s sense of peace and well being. Safe. Amazing work.

Gazing into space seeking inspiration for one's writing is the time to see the dust mites circulating! Which reminds me to look for that duster!

So beautiful to see, so beautiful to watch. Swirl a piece of paper or cloth among them and watch them soar even more. Christine - this is so very nice.

Take care - Dave

I have been listening to New Order by Joy Division a lot recently; it is a super fun and catchy tune. I love how observant and whimsical this piece is. It makes me happy and reminds us to appreciate the little quirks in life.

This was a flashback and one to savor. New Order is timeless and Joy Division as well. Thank you for this. Great work Chris! Distracted indeed.

Your words are filled with the magical notes the universe plays all around us...a music that's constant and to which everything dances to a new order. Indeed uplifting the spirit, bringing vitality to our world. You notice such finer things around you and put so much thought in their beauty and significance, Ms. Chris.

Yes! I love to open the blinds on the east side of the house as the sun is rising and watch the dust motes dance in the rays! Makes me believe in magic again. The imagery in this one is right up my alley. Loved it, Chris. Lydi**

The random movement is actually the basis of the beginning of life in the universe itself. There's motion even in lifeless dust! How beautiful the dust looks bouncing in a ray of sun. You worded it perfectly, dear Chris.
