We Are Made of Stardust

we are made of stardust
stars are made of us
the science, undisputable
religions
agree too

we are made of stardust
stars are made of us
Look Up!
See!
unity, every
shape, size, hue
burning, yearning
for the same thing/ending
as me, you

that connection
to stardust

I recently read an article on the myriad colors of stars and thought, “They are like a cosmic flower garden. Or maybe flowers are like earth-bound stars.” Then, of course, I pondered that all are elementally the same. And a poem and painting were born.
