We Are the Universe

“We Are the Universe”

we are the stuff of which
the stars are made
their dust rains upon the earth
saturates the flood waters
mixes with the dust of centuries
renewing our connection with
a greater universe than dominates
our shortening hours and ever shorter days

with every bite of food
each step we take
each drop of infinite
everlasting rain upon our heads
each parched and tortured grain of sand
our oneness with the whole
renews
