What Exactly are You?

Winged creatures,
So fragile,
So powerful.

Flitting with purpose.
A welcomed dust.
A dust to bring forth life.
If you aren’t a help,
What exactly are you?

That is the question.
What exactly are you?
Do you, too, leave behind remnants?
Are they sweet?
Are they essential?

Or do you leave behind something else?

Something else entirely.
