Blow Them Away

I’m thinking
that every grain of sand
represents some part
of my life.
I’m thinking
that every speck of dust
has some meaning,
some significance
for me.
And now
I’ve shaken them up
I’m watching them float away.
Float away
likes motes in the sunshine
leaving me
ready to begin again
with a clean towel.
