I really love the way the words "dust" and "sandalled" dance together. Such a yummy flow...

What a beautiful accompaniment to your haiku Gillena. It was warm and windy here last Sunday and the church doors were open and the breeze came right into the church. Now I am worried the lit advent candles wont last until Christmas Day as they flickered a lot in the breeze!

Unknown said...
