Remember that you are dust

Dust on a cosmic scale, from today's NASA pic
Something else for Ash Wednesday... the Orion Nebula, full of hot gas, dark dust and new-born stars. This is the dust of which we're made: "and God saw that it was good".

what God can do
within the dust,
within the dirt,
within the stuff
of which the world
is made,
and the stars that blaze
in our bones,
and the galaxies that spiral
inside the smudge
we bear.

  1. Hi Antonia, it is absolutely amazing what God can do with all of His creation!


I'd love to read your comments, and I'll try to reply to each one.
