Dust if you must


Dust if you must

Originally uploaded by cool_spark.
Dust if you must but there’s not much time
With rivers to swim and mountains to climb
Music to hear and books to read
Friends to cherish and life to lead

Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
To paint a picture or write a letter
Bake a cake or plant a seed
Ponder the difference between want and need

Dust if you must but the world’s out there
With the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain
This day will not come around again

Dust if you must, but bear in mind
The time will come and it’s not kind
And when you go, and go you must
You yourself will make more dust

“This is a poem I saw on the way to the Putaruru Blue Springs, the prime source of NZ’s mineral water”!

    Good one Sparkie!
    Life is too short to experience all it has to offer.
