sally forth

Those

Ancient

Explorers

Looking beyond

Were exercising

Their curiosity

Wanting to know even more

Than someone told them existed

Because they imagined that something

Was waiting for them, to be discovered

  1. Oh, this is marvelous: “…they imagined that something Was waiting for them, to be discovered…” The heart of an explorer! ❤

  2. I love this poem, Annette. It reminds me of Star Trek: Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.
