The Unfolding


The Unfolding:

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

Watch this at full screen !!
These are not stars but 
galaxies like our Milky Way.
There are trillions of galaxies in the sky, each with billions of stars.
This is a small region near the North Pole,
1/24,000,000 of the whole sky.

— 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?

__ And do they laugh at / with us trying to comprehend this vast cosmos
            with our little minkey brains?
