We are all small and insignificant in the grand scheme of things. Great piece!
There really is something fascinating about dust particles. Nice piece.
This is really a beautiful write Lettie and I love your sites new look! You know I almost had a write like this but I choose the heavy handed finale. This week will be interesting because of the shaft of sunlight! Lol!
"immersed in beauty and dancing as a dust mote" . . . I know this feeling! Now there are words to describe it. Thank you, Lettie.
You've perfectly described the photo. Nice work!
I like becoming a dust mote and the indifference there.
"held fast by a warm and infinite indifference" is such an interesting line....you have used "indifference" in a way that it is not normally used and the unexpected effect it has elicits a sense of vast beauty.
You make art with words - this time to perfectly match an amazing photo!I also like the bright new look of your blog!Wishing you a wonderful week :)
Indifference? That word comes a little like a slap in the face, there at the end...
Thank you all! (I'm glad you like the new look, Eva.) I must admit my inspiration not only stemmed from Mag's prompt but also from a commentary by Graham Joyce speaking of his battle with aggressive lymphoma cancer. "There is a shocking and beautiful indifference at large in the universe, and I just have to work with it." If you are unfamiliar with this author, I invite you to sit with him for a while (http://www.grahamjoyce.co.uk/). May you all have a beautiful week... :) Thanks for taking the time to visit and to comment.
Like Carl Sagan , i feel indifferently insignificant ! Thanks
Powerful little piece...the title really ties it all together...nice...
"warm and intimate indifference" I really like that. Nicely written
