What Astrophysicists Think

What Astrophysicists Think

We are descendants of stardust
some cosmic scheme, concocted
in a soup of superheated novae
cores of ancient stars,
nuclear reacting
imploding; exploding
in a big bang;
mystical, magical,
celestial debris  
spread far and wide
throughout space, and
(give or take a few
hundred million years)
breathed into life

  2. Not a PAD poem, but a PA prompted one. Added this one (originally posted on facebook in Feb in response to Robert Lee Brewer's prompt -- A thinking poem). This one's for you, Hannah! Hope you enjoy! :-))

  3. Thank you, Pamela, every second was worthy of the waiting!! I love this part,

    "We are descendants of stardust

    Oh, and your last line so faith-spilling...

    I so appreciate your digging this one up from the archives for me today! Such a treat.I totally remember this prompt, I wrote "What Whales Think," for this one.

    I hope your walk was a peaceful and fulfilling time for you today! Smiles!

  5. Wow, we ARE all that, aren't we? I tend to forget in the day-to-day.

    All of us made from little bits of stars.

    I love the expanding energy in this!
