Star story

Star story

That the rose too
             has its own narrative
it’s ancestral roots
             a species of beauty
that did not evolve
             from thin air
but from the same
             basic building blocks
from which our own
             ancestors were created
an immanence present
             at the dawn of creation
particles of energy
             transformed into mass
and so the universe itself
             is family tree
and infinite displacement
             of inertia
human beings
             who have the sense
to set the rose
             upon a pedestal
