a towering cloud of dust
writhing within
knots of great mass rise
the cloud trembles as it's immense gravitational pull sucks it inward
collapse, the center heats
a protostar, the center of the boiling core
gravity pulls dust and debris inward, becoming part of the star
years, millions of years go by
a massive struggle
a star
is born
