Out of the Box

July 20, 2015

If I were born in a box, there would be no mystery.

I would know the corners of my world. . .

recognize my limitations. . .

know how far I could go.

But I was born out of the box.

There are no corners here.

I gaze up at the stars and see endless unknowable worlds.

Eternity– how far does it go? My mind barely grasps forever.

Out of the box, I wonder, how far can I go?

What is my potential?

I’ve seen and heard of miracles performed by gifted souls. Could I go there?

I wonder.

Sometimes I forget and live as though born in a box, wrapped up in drama, my vision narrow.

This never feels right, for my soul recognizes wandering.

My soul wants to be my potential.

Is my potential endless as the stars?

I think so.

Strive for it, dear friends.

    Very profound thoughts. I was thinking though, no matter where one is born, breaking from the box bounds can happen to all. That peacock is amazing. They never raise the tails when I see them. Nice photos all around.

      Actually it’s a bee moth– fooled me to the first time I saw it. As there are so very few bees this year, I am wondering if this mother nature’s solution. It’s nice to see little creatures in the wildflowers making new seeds for next year. Thanks for your visit Derrick.

    I don’t know how you do it. You must be a very patient soul. God Bless you for capturing His creatures so beautifully.

      Actually not so patient. I usually find enough photos in 2 short walks with the dog. There really is so much beauty around us if we take but a few minutes to look. Blessings to you.
