Karumi is the Japanese word for "lightness". The famous Japanese poet Basho used it to mean "the beauty of ordinary things spoken of in a simple way".
This creates such a vivid image -- I think many people can identify though their specific images might be somewhat different. It's a great poem when it crosses into a field where it can "work" for many and illicit different visions.
I go kicking around in the dust from time to time. This haiku resonates in me.
Age, like dust, becomes insignificant as long as love lingers.
