Seeking: Beyond Borders and Buzzards


photo and prompt by Gail from At the Farm

We fix our gaze on buzzards in our lives,
convinced that they are focused on us, too.
The wise and brave forsake such slim horizons.
What use is vision, blocked by point of view?

Oh my - how can a random prompt and a paragraph written by someone so far away so completely address my state of mind today?

One of my goals is to see what I want and really believe I can achieve it...keep the buzzards hiding high in the trees and out of my life!

I loved the last line too. So true. We get so stuck in our opinions we forget to listen and learn. Something to think about.

Amy said...
