Citations for mote
A tiny mote of dust is truly a cosmos unto itself, that much we do now know. It contains molecules that are far too small for us to see without a microscope, but they are no less real than the dust itself or the piano on which the mote of dust has settled. Roger A. Caras, Cat Is Watching
A white mote hovered in the air several feet away from her. Sara Stern, Dragon's Song
