PAD 18: Life in the Face of Death

Today’s prompt is another two-fer (three-fer): life, death, or both.  Let’s live well despite the inevitability of death.

Life in the Face of Death

 

No matter how often we sweep

No matter how well

Dust and dirt always find their way

Back over the threshold.

 

Yet, we continue to sweep

And open the window

Which lets the light in, so

The dust motes dance.
