    Sparse and poignant, Sheila. Much is hinted at in these few words.

    I read this poem yesterday. It is still haunting me. "moth" s brilliant, but "dust" cuts to the quick.

    I'm so happy to hear that you were 'touched' by this poem. Thank you.

    Heartful… in so many thoughts Sheila_!

    A light touch; mayhaps an infant daughter's; times dust.

    The lightest touch…and a magical one that makes me think of fairy dust. Beautiful, Sheila.
