Dust in a Warm Summer Wind......

Whenever I begin to feel that the trials of
living are beyond my grasp
Or the questions rather than the answers
seem far more of the task

When I watch human nature when greed
and selfishness materialize
When our little world seems too big
and I slowly realize

And yes , when I feel that I am
tangled and all is just insanity
I go somewhere in my mind .....far from
prying eye's and calamity

When the storms settle down and the turning
tides wind down to a calm
That time alone becomes an elixer
that peace a soothing balm

And I think.....no ....I know .... that all
we are is dust on a summer breeze
Humankind is not as important as we think
and my life becomes more at ease
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"~~All we are is dust in the wind"........an old song .....I never once heard that song but what I didn't become a little calmer , a little more at ease, we humans tend to think that somehow
life is "ALL" about us ......but it isn't !~~ it's about living that life......truely living.

Man believes himself to be the ultimate crown of the cosmos when we are indeed a speck of dust. One that is important to God himself but a tiny, irritating speck to the expanse of space and other creation. ahorseback, thanks for putting us in our place today. HB

My dear ahorseback... you are my eyes and voice "we humans tend to think that somehow

life is "ALL" about us ......but it isn't !~~ it's about living that life......truely living."

Beautifully stated and so true. And this extends to compassion which encompasses all living beings..ideally. In my own humble and jaded words: "We humans need to get over ourselves."

You said it better.

UP beautiful Awesome and there should be a "TRUE!"

...."
