DO YOU REMEMBER?

 

The Andromeda Galaxy from the Astronomy Picture of the Day Website.

 

The atoms that built this world and everything on it were forged in the hearts of stars.

 

Do you remember when

You rode the light after the big bang;

You lived in the heart of a star as it began to shine;

You danced between the first stars;

You were a grain of sand on a new born world bathed in the first sunrise;

You were a droplet in the newborn ocean;

You rode the shock waves of a dying star;

And were reborn as new stars began to shine.

Do you remember?

Hands down, my favorite opening sequence of a movie was "Contact".  This photo reminds me of that.

And your poem is so perfect.  I can see it illustrated with a child looking out across the night horizon with the slightest trace of a smile.

many hugs,
Russ
