Photographs

The beautiful landscape of Switzerland

The dreamy lakes and the majestic mountains

The emerald trees and the lovely pelicans and

The ducks and the geese swimming in groups

Are seen and framed by the eyes of the artist

The right angle is chosen and the right lighting

The artist sees and captures the beauty of

The loan boat on a foggy lake

The row of trees reflected in the water

The yellow widow pane that opens to a lovely field 

The broken glass that tells a tale of sorrow

The homes of the pelicans atop the tall trees

The fiery leaves of the fall

The lone red bench standing in water and

The swans parading on the lake

All subjects are worthy and are turned into art

These photographs belong in studios and magazines

And yet they are taken for our eyes

We are grateful to be exposed to their beauty 

And to be uplifted by them

We are thankful for the eyes and the heart that capture them

And offer them to us as a gift

Where no one has gone before

Why do we want to got to Mars?

Aren’t there enough interesting places on Earth?

Have we explored everywhere?

 

Yes, we’ve been to the top of the tallest mountains

We’ve been to the depths of the oceans

We’ve been to the Arctic and deserts vast

Why are we not content with that?

 

We have this need to explore the unknown

We have the desire to push the limits further

We like to do what has not done before

This is what separates us from animals

Who are content with the status quo

 

So, we’ll make it to Mars one day 

Like we have made it to the moon

This challenge will be met too

With creativity, the advancement of technology

And experiences of the past

This goal with be met one day, I’m sure
