Soon enough, it'll be "dust to dust"
For us all,
Back to our starlight beginnings,
Ash by ash,
Atom by atom.
We were born along with the universe
In that Big Bang,
But we'll return to the stars
In the Big Whisper
As body slowly twines with earth,
The loving earth.
In my garden I've cradled the "dust":
I've held my future in my hands,
And I've smelled my ancestry there:
Plant and animal both.
It's never too early to be ready
To go home.
