You would make my day if you

“Man must rise above the Earth – to the top of the atmosphere and beyond – for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.”
Socrates 



I am the explorer reaching upward
but you are the one with wings
You do not need a space ship
 to reach further beyond your means
I study for a lifetime preparing
For my scheduled flight
You merely take a moment
And then sail the bluest skies.

  1. I love that there is no malice or envy in the speaker's voice. She speaks fact about the subject and herself. Never suggesting that one is better than the other--even if one has it easier. A person like this one flies true.

  2. Oh my goodness.... I think our two writes will pair nicely. I wrote mine before reading yours. I'll be interested to see if you think the same. You definitely captured the astronauts thoughts very well!

  5. I hadn't noticed the reflection in the other pictures I saw. It looks like the butterfly is going knock knock, come out or let me in.
