I'm generally not that into poetry, but there are a few poems that I do like. This poem is one of my favorites for a number of reasons. For one thing, I like things with multiple meanings or interpretations. It's going to snow/ice/storm or do other generally unpleasant things tomorrow, and while the essence of this poem for me is deeper than the weather, I thought it was appropriate.

Dream Dust
Langston Hughes
Gather out of star dust
Earth dust, cloud dust,
storm dust,
and splinters of hail,
one handful of dream dust
Not for sale.
