The Unfolding

The Unfolding

I know I am honored to be witness of so much majesty
- Sara Teasdale

The Galaxies dance, each pirouette taking billions of years.
There are trillions of galaxies, each containing billions of stars.

— What do the stars have to tell us ? What have they seen?
     These our starry companions through space and time ? 

—  Did they see the iron pounding in our blood - forged in stars before our sun?
      Did they make the calcium in our bones and the salt in our food?

—  Did they find lucky little Earth hiding in a quiet corner? 

—  And blowing cosmic winds,
          did they wander across the sky like sowers,
              sprinkling down upon Earth the seeds of life?


The sword of Orion opens the doors of the sky.
from the Pyramid Texts
