Within our Reach..a motivational Haiku, by Whonunuwho

No stars beyond our Sun out of reach.
No stars beyond our Sun out of reach.
The heavens above beckon to us.
The heavens above beckon to us.
no storms or barriers to block our determined minds.
no storms or barriers to block our determined minds.
Our spirits are strong.
Our spirits are strong.
The dawning of a new day, and great aspirations prevail.
The dawning of a new day, and great aspirations prevail.

No Limits


Beyond galaxies,

The farthest reaches of space.

seeing a hero's face.


Our man was so born,

his special needs, not forlorn.

no challenge to scorn.


No star beyond reach,

a lesson, well, he did teach.

Heard by our fond speech.


Worry or dismay,

Is no more, in what we say.

by our deeds, display.


Leonardo was best,

as da Vinci passed the test,

Set goals for the rest.


By their work we're blessed,

much effort they did invest.

with no limits, stressed.

I wonder how many people believe they can reach the farthest star if they only reach far enough? Beautiful message my friend....well-written in its complexity and simplicity.
