Desert floor at dusk—
in the litter glory shines,
in the dust, wisdom.

  13. There is an explanation for the dust to be wisdom. It is just one of many miracles, the fact that the soil is made of the blood, skin, bones, hair and flesh of mankind and holds all knowledge. You stated it very simply, and showed us with the photo. Wonderful!
