we are stars

we are stars
stellar by nature
cosmic in pedigree
our bodies every bit the stuff of the heavens
that forged earth, ocean, and living creature the same
in a most beautiful and intelligent recycling
of universal energy from form to form,
phase to phase and age to age,
from dying star to human flesh
a sublime transfer of luminescence
with nothing lost or gained,
beauty and perfection
in every configuration.

look up above
see our reflections shimmering
in the ripples of a gentle night sky
in our golden lady sun
in rivers, mountains, clouds
in you
and in me –
for we are incarnations of the same energy,
threads of the same universal fabric,
light of the same stars.
