Stardust

in a distant eon, you and i

were stars.

tumble and spark,

ether and eterntity,

dust and light,

while the world was

being born.

we were young.

fierce and shining

like a child’s eyes.

in a distant eon, you and i

were stars.

rock and fire

distance and delight.

while the world flourished

we joined birthday parties

for planets,

harmonized like a trillion crickets,

danced like dervishes.

in a distant eon, you and i

were stars.

in the multiverse we stand

seeing who we were while we are, now.

someone calls us by our names

words, made of stardust and flesh,

creating our constellations.

Stardust, Kaushalya Bannerji, 2020
