Open to Discovery

Stand at the waters’ edge
pushing back things between
horizon ahead
I see the distance
go back, go forward
back calls
I know it
fear is in the space ahead
open me to discovery
open my heart, my head
with the key
the world will unlock
fear will be forgotten
open me to discovery
open my heart, my head
to the courage of curiosity.

It's funny, isn't it, how we have moments when our eyes see what's ahead, but our hearts hug the shore.

I love the last line. Curiosity is a wonderful thing but asks courage of us in return.

Hi Dawn,
That last is what inspired this post. I'm glad you heard that. It's where my heart was. You always seem to find it.

Liz, you make me think in ways few do and often I find your postings, rather than tell me something, well, I feel they show me the path of discovery. In this post, I think of the famous quote that goes something like this: "a man should know what he is running from as much as what he is running to," or something to that effect. Time for another cookie as I ponder the ripples you place in my mind.

You make me think. You make me remember what thinking is about.
