Star Stuff

I was born of a singularity – 
A 14 billion year-old silent explosion,
Minuscule yet massive;
Unimaginably dense  

I somehow expanded –
An infinite void,
Spawning colorful clouds
Of cosmic gas and dust

I was trillions of blinding stars
Collapsing and exploding,
Raining elemental sparks
Across the great expanse  

I suddenly became stable,
Pressed by invisible forces;
Molten from trembling plates;
Cooled and carved by moving ice

I was synthesized in the oceans – 
A hopeful spiraling helix,
Single celled and brainless,
Growing ever more complex

I was a bipedal stranger,
Learning of tools and fire;
I hunted and fished the earth,
Uttering the first of human sounds

I am the universe in deep contemplation;
I am consciousness sprung from the inanimate;
I am carbon-based collection of stardust,
United with myself in the vastness of space.
