Dream-Dust


Gather out of star-dust, 
Earth-dust, 
Cloud-dust, 
Storm-dust, 
And splinters of hail, 
One handful of dream-dust, 
Not for sale.
 ― Langston Hughes

Have you read this poem before? 
 I just read it this morning ...... and it really spoke to me.
We all need a handful of dream-dust!!
My interpretation of dream-dust is that little sprinkle of confidence in your mind that you can actually attain your dreams!  I'm not sure if that is the way he meant it or if he meant it in terms of sleep.  
Any thoughts on this?

Autumn is my favorite season. Warm and cozy, welcoming.

I adore the leaves, and the Langston Hughes.

We gather the dust(s).....and form our dreams. Your dreams, not for sale. The splinters of hail, powerful lightning producing hail.......

Interesting poem for sure. I liked it and those leaves were really pretty.
