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.

    Well I know a certain little someone who would agree with that lovely thought! Stars are energy I suppose and we are part of that universal energy…perhaps we need to lay still and watch the twinkles and glows

    The fact we are made of stars and stars are made of us makes me all the more aware of my place in the universe.

    Yes, perfect! And darling Pluto, ten years away and now right next door. We are Pluto! Or something like that. ;)
