the Universe

I am starstuff, the fires of the sun
burn along
every nerve and flash of thought.

With every breath
I steal the air from your chest.

I am rooted to the earth
with each step,
Gaia lives in my hardened bones and teeth.

With every pulse of my heart
the waters of my peoples flow filling my vessel with history and passion/compassion.

Elements dance
among the stars and my being
to the cosmic rhythm.

I am the universe,
the universe aware.
