Up and up I reach so high

fly high

Up and up I reach so high

further than the mighty sky

further than the eagle soars

further than we’ve been before.

Up and up I reach to see

the universe can’t hide from me.

I’ll not abide, nor subside

’til my quest has opened wide

the “Why of This” so deep inside.

I must seek so I will know

these are seeds that I shall sow.

With this journey that I take

on the  ‘morrow we may wake –

to golden, brighter, better, days

where good things will come our way!

But until that day arrives

upward, onward I will strive!

-Penny L Howe, 2013


Stay cool everyone, hang in there, believe in yourself and go for it, remember to make a positive difference while you achieve – Pay it forward, a win-win solution for everyone!

Much love to you,

~ Penny

  1. This is what I admire so about you Penny, within your lovely poetry are so many messages for us to contemplate, gently pushing us to be the very best, as you are. 🙂

  2. I really like the way the words just slide off the tongue with this. With a message that is easy to see, easy to catch hold of, easy to go with the flow.

    Thank you Penny. Have a great day, and hugs to you and your family

    • Thanks Alastair, a simple style that children really enjoy reading (at least the one’s here, lol) and I’ve discovered I do too! You also a wonderful evening and Excellent Sunday with your children my dear friend! 🙂 xo

  3. Love the emotions in this one…my only criticism is that I was looking for a simile with the kite and didn’t find one. However, so very well done…I love it! 🙂

Thank you for your thoughts!
