Today I got Granny off the fan,
Uncle off Mozart’s bust.
Don’t laugh—we too will turn again
to what we’re fashioned from, viz., dust!
Yes, I really did some dusting today. And no, I do not believe the dust bunnies are my relations. 🙂 But I like how that a simple household chore can bring back memories of loved ones who are no longer with us. Thinking of them takes the drudgery out of task.
