even here starstuff shadorma

B&P Shadorma & Beyond

The surface of the earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean.  On this shore we’ve learned most of what we know.  Recently we’ve waded a little way out, maybe ankle-deep, and the water seems inviting.  Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can.  Because the cosmos is also within us.  We’re made of star-stuff.  We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.

– Carl Sagan (1:58)

even here
[walking in maple]
the cosmos
calls to me –
there’s star-stuff in the woodlands
and i am smitten
