hawk chronicles #5…

copyright cwmartin 2011

i watch men
knees bent
hands clasped
staring
into my domain
searching
for wisdom
hoping
for new manna
but never
unfolding
their hands
to till the earth
or
plant the seeds
and
seeing
no further
than
their own
outstretched
hands

  1. “seeing
    no further
    than
    their own
    outstretched
    hands”

    One’s potential can far exceed one’s reach—once action is taken to till vision. Fine poem.

  2. A great poem, reminding us that the experience of life can only be achieved by taking part of it ourselves – we cannot experience life through the eyes and hands of others xx
