Loess:

Loess deposits are geologic formations made of windblown dust.

They are among the most fertile soils because of their porosity.
We* often think of dust as devoid of life- dustbowl, dusty, dirty.

But in this process of gathering, in the accumulation of particulates, 
there is fertility and potential regeneration.

I wonder, when does a stream become a river? When does a trickle become a cascade?
When does a pile of dust become loess?

When do plants begin to grow in the loess?
