Star Dust


You said something, so beautiful today,

As speckles of dust, danced on a ray.


You pointed, surprised, said “daddy look there”!

I said I know little sweetheart, it’s just dust in the air.


Then you called mammy, she Said “it’s just dust floating by.”

Then came perfect words, “But It looks like stars in the sky!”


Reminding me, as an adult, as my thoughts turned reflective,

It’s not what we experience, it’s about our perspective.
