The Cosmos

“We are the cosmos made conscious and life is the means by which the universe understands itself.” ~Brian Cox

We carry the universe within
We are the cosmos
stardust in the veins,
a collection of dead stars.

Splendor and magnificence flowing
light seeping through each pore.
Shackles of gravity chasing us
our being chooses to be untethered.

Nothing but a hoard of ordinary atoms
bound by opulence and beauty.
Our actuality is ephemeral
in the perpetual history of time.

We carry the universe within
We are the cosmos
until we wash away into oblivion
cessation of life – nothingness.

This is really cool. I love, love, the opening stanza. Also connected with the two images that accompanied the piece. You summed up the oneness of the human experience here, showed what we often forget: human are not really set apart from nature; we are nature, we are the universe, “we are the cosmos.” And this is truly cosmic work! A lovely image I’ll remember: “stardust in the veins”. Wow.

This was really beautiful Rishika. Indeed we carry the universe within ourself. We have the power to make something and destroy at the same time. Our time is limited here and being here is definitely a boon. Loved the imagery as well. Excellent. πŸ˜‡

Hey Harsh, so good to hear your thoughts! Yes, there is a oneness that we share with everything around us. Like Hindu mythology says, we are made up of the elements of nature. True words, it is up to us to make that limited time count and do good. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I hope you are doing well. Have a happy day. 🌺

Hi Amy, thank you for taking the time to read and for the kind comment. True words, it would be beautiful if everyone knew the potential they had. Oh, that’s a quote I came across on the internet, I really liked it so I decided to include it. The soul is a great mystery. So I’m not sure about what that means. I’ll try looking it up and maybe find something.
I hope you have a brilliant day. 🌼
