Reach Out with a Spiral ArmIt is when you smile that I am most able
to remember your true origin, where it is
you've come from: we're made from star-
dust, atoms swirl within us, each a minute
solar system with electrons in its planetary
orbits. You are a galaxy. You are complete.
There are spaces in you that I cannot see,
black holes, parts of you that once burned
bright but have decayed and swallow up any
light that comes their way. But they are not
the sum of you, they are only parts. And,
inside you, other stars are yet being born.
