Ask the universe for help
The guru suggested.
Seek assistance from the stars?
The cynic sneered.
I am the universe.
Breathing in starlight with my first cry.
Exhaling the moon in my last breath.
Somewhere, in between,
You will send a plaintive cry
To echo and vibrate in the atom rich expanse.
With all else among the galaxies,
We decend to dust.
Renewing our role,
Reconstituting the cosmos,
Reconvening as milk or Milky Way.
And as I wait, I realise.
Requesting assistance from the stars then
Is truely a self help strategy
