The Color of Dust is a lyrical retrospective of one life in particular amid reflections on the world in general.

...dust that dances on a silken scarf of sun....

    and the dust is whirling. It's Aurangabad,
    the moon's a pearl....

        When you think back, not in black and white
         but in turquoise and daffodil....
