Poem: Look Carefully

Look Carefully

Look carefully.
Not at the ground beneath your feet,
or the mountains like walls
from the ancient past,
but up
to the sky. Look up
at what lies beyond
where you have been,
or where you are,
for the only boundaries are
where you look.

Hi Tom,

Nearly missed this one! It's true that we need to be open to every possibility and not just that which is under our nose.
