(Feeling) Connected

You are a spiritual
being living a
human existence,
always connected to
the All and the Everything
by the magical star
stuff from which you are made.

You are always connected:
to neighbors, to friends,
to black, brown and white,
to family and strangers,
the near and the far.

All the same star stuff.
All the same magic.

Alone in your home,
alone in the world,
alone in your heart —
all are illusions.

To feel the connection,
listen to your heart beat.
Breathe deep, and
on the exhale,
hear my heart beat too.

We are connected.
