Born of stardust

Tonight,
as knots were massaged
from shoulders tense from
constant motion and
relentless worry,
the universe unfolded
within me

I am born of stardust

So vast
as to be beyond
even dreams of calculating
are the motions of
constellations
through time and space
that led me to be
here, to be
at all

Worries
are so small
held up against
mountains and
oceans filled with
stardust in myriad forms
and the stars in the sky
(that we are a part of)
and the galaxies
from which, so far away,
their brilliance still
illuminates
us

We
are born
of stardust
;
worry, from
forgetting
that we are

I saw

I soared,
free,
stardust among stardust

And when
asked how I was,
my “good. better than good,
better than in a long while,”
was offered through a shimmering
of tears
followed by
a hug from one woman,
then from another,
who whispered “God bless”
as she released me

“Thank you,”
I told her
before stepping out into darkness
filled with twinkling lights
and telling the sky,
“He already has”

Don't make Winky cry. Let kindness shine!

      I’m going to check this out tonight. Anything that helps me keep this sense of wonder is something I want to hold close.

    Oh my goodness but this is beautiful! I was staring out at the sky last night because Venus was so bright and low…I felt very peaceful staring into infinite space. Your words really touch me. ox

      Thank you. ♡ This morning I was starting to get into the harried zone as I tried ro leave home. Tossing some stuff into the recycling bin, I caught a glimpse of twinkling above … and was pulled right back toward last night’s understanding. I hope to hold onto it now!
