Dust to Dust...


YOU

You are made from stardust

every bit as bright and shiny

every bit as mysterious and ethereal


You are made from dust

everyday, ordinary dust

that settles in undisturbed places

that collects and holds memories of fingerprints


You come from the garden

a place of seeds and weeds,

where there is flourishing and where there is dormancy


The bits of you were gathered together

from stars, from dust, from the cool dirt of the garden

Holy breath spoke life into your very bones

Beloved.....


Life will coax you along to wonder at the vastness of the stars

seeking answers in their mystery

that part of you that is stardust- illuminating


You will travel dusty roads

sometimes consumed by storms of dust and debris

but arriving on the other side more aware of the dust formed

in the shape and wonder of you


Your life will echo the seasons of the garden,

planting leading to growing

growing leading to fruit

fruit leading to blessing

blessing returning to dirt

to rest and renew


And when your journey comes full circle

when the breath that formed you

welcomes you home

beloved-

you will scatter

among the stars

leaving fingerprints behind

resting at last in the garden

for

from the dust you were created and to the dust you will return
