Eyes Turned Skyward

Ascending ever changing sky and light
Wondrous by day, wondrous by night
Ever present waves of color crest and enfold
In awe be this celestial sea of soul.

Rose Marie Raccioppi

For once you have tasted flight
you will walk the earth
with your eyes turned skywards,
for there you have been and there you long to return.

Leonardo da Vinci

Those same stars twinkle over other fields than these.
