Earth Rising

As our eyes are drawn upwards for ascension.
Watching the drift of far off clouds disperse
rising to heights we cannot attain with expectant
dreams of far off lands.  How far will our next step
take us as the Earth rises up to meet our foot fall and
we are once again connected?  And of coming back
down?  Look not to the skies but all around.
