Child with skin made of stars

We are not lost—one
within the other,
our lines are their own,
hung
from side by side stars, riding
a sky made of earth
whispered
with ancestor’s feet.

We are love,
cradled
within love’s womb

shining from the inside out.

Child with skin made of stars by 


This is the poem I wrote to go with this image of my daughter.
I thought the poem could stand on it’s own as well, for those who may just enjoy the words.
