Infinitely dense

Infinitely small

Containing all the

Energy, matter 

All the potential of

Exploding star-factories

Manufacturing the fundamental

Building blocks of life.


Made of star dust

Birthed from the heavens

Incubated in the sea’s womb

Each part of all 

ex uno multis 

Rather than e pluribus unum


Bring together your senses

Concentrate, connect,

Eyes, ears, pencil to

See all that is there

Under the scope

Gentle fine tune 

Up and down

Layer upon layer reveal

A world of microscopic

Creatures emerges

Martha, Martha

Distracted with doing

Achiever, go-getter, ambitious 

There is need of only one thing 

Sit, stop, contemplate with Mary

Purity of heart is to will one thing

One Thing that contains all things

In Whom we live and move and

Have our being
