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?
