Dust in the Cosmos

200 billion trillion stars
in the cosmos adorn
and 8 billion humans
from star dust born
14 billion years
the rough estimate age
of all the constellations
on the planetary stage
burning fuel
or souls roaming free?
the cosmos and the heavens
seem the same to me
lifeforms unconnected
geography unmapped
knowledge and understanding
the only thing we lack
on a blue marble full of resources
and an atmospheric shield
like the hearts of those broken
who refuse to yield
a single granule
in a beach full of sand
and yet every soul impacts
this ancient and broiling land
teeming with individuals
and history violent as the sun
cooling just enough
to allow life a bit of fun
and what will happen
when the planet rebounds?
turning cold as ice
emitting no further planetary sound?
we’ll be gone by then
a twinkle in the night sky
to some other planet
also questioning why
the universe is beautiful
and chaotic and unknown
I hope we leave behind
a clue that they were never alone
