Friday Flash 55 — One with Everything


This is me.  No one — made of Stardust.
 I am one with swirling planets,
    conifer cones dusted with snow,
        delicate ice crusting upon my vacant footsteps —
one with the underweight babe, the bloated beast,
the aged woman praying over beads one final time.

I am the beads, the breath, the bursting, and beyond.
All one.


My post in exactly 55 words written for Friday Flash 55.

One with everything. A fully loaded pizza was my first thought — wrong, as usual. But true; we are all made of "star stuff."

Wonderfully worded, Lydia!

blessing and Bear hugs!

Totally off topic: I love the movie "Stardust". Have you ever seen it?

Yes, looking up at the night sky (prefer a bit warmer than the image you portrayed) I do feel different, more at peace :)

"One with everything." That's really a great place to be spiritually. The connection of sharing something with nature is very empowering. Awesome poem with great introspection! Chris

Margaret ~ No, I have not seen "Stardust." I just looked at the page for it at and it looks marvelous. Many thanks for the tip.
