We Are All Made of Stars

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Muse.”

Lavender with beeWhat greater muse than nature? What finer inspiration than the natural world?

I have to remind myself daily to take a few moments and consider all the purposeful little cogs of this wondrous universe, working together like the inner machinery of  some mighty clockwork creation where even something as simple as a grain of pollen serves a purpose.

Humbling and ennobling all at the same time.

And a reminder to myself that all my actions (and inactions) will, at least, have some small effect on something or someone somewhere.

Like all members of any ecosystem we are reliant, to some degree, on one another. An important consideration as we make our way through our daily routines.

As the poet says: Be humble for you are made of earth. Be noble for you are made of stars.
