Born not in darkness but in a glory of light
glowing plasma heralding
time to come.
Wrapped in dust, avidly gravitating
acquiring debris, gathering and heating
to planetary status.
Time builds further complexities
molecular forms, moving, reproducing
that bloom in awareness
who eventually come to know
that stars are
born not in darkness but in a glory of light.
