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 Β ‘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,Β 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. πŸ™‚

  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! πŸ™‚ xo

      • Thank you. I look forward to getting them back tomorrow πŸ™‚

        Reading these out loud is very good as well. Helps with rhythm. Enjoy your weekend

  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! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Kev. You’re right, I guess it was a “hidden simile”) πŸ™‚ Apart from the fun, I think we fly kites because we feel the need (early on) to see how high they will go, and of course the ability to keep them up there as high as possible! Just like life’s pursuits – the kite, representative of our passions /challenges to reach for the unknown and success. Thanks so much for your very kind thoughts, happy weekend to you! πŸ™‚

Thank you for your thoughts!
