I thought I understood

the stars and wheeling galaxies

and I did

but not in the way I imagined I did

a mental image made me think

of beautiful nebulae

and our souls as wisps of dust and gas

swirling through the vastness with them

the truth is more like our earthly bodies

diminishing with age as we watch the heavens

and rejoin them as the particles

with which we came into being

I understand now too well as part of the process

the shine of our ambulatory moment....
