tracing the origin

Villages built from pebbles
waves gathered on the shore
you picked up from your daily walk
limestones, flint, quartz
broken pieces from stellar space
passing through extreme temperatures
holding the beginning of time

you peopled them with stories
of elementary particles,
the quarks, muons, bosons
dust, ice, and rocks, hydrogen and helium
objects living in orbits, parabolic and elliptical
formed with “rudeness and grace”
almost infinite stretch of time.

You wanted the villages to be beautiful
harmony and mystery,
vast and simple,
a touch of God.
