Can't Put the Pen Down…

We are Star Dust… or Not

So apparently we’re formed
from cosmic dandruff,
ashes from a stellar furnace
reintegrated into planets
and people.
By Jupiter, it has a ring to it!
Makes you feel rather celestially grand until
you realize that everything
is made of stardust;
the chair, the cat,
your teacup and somehow
the concept of exclusive grandeur flickers and
fades like the star you wished upon
last night.


PS. (If we’re made of star stuff I think my knee is going nova)

    Thought-provoking. (And I dig the humor at the end. 😉)
