Observe and Interpret

Eyes,observe,
With the intention,
of learning a lot more,

Mind,interpret,
Open your thoughts,
Unanswered questions for sure,

Don't just roll through life,
Like the wheels on a car,
Observe and Interpret,
You might find a star.

Observe and Interpret,
Don't just look and see,
You see the outside,

Buts what's important,
Is inside of me..

    that is what i believe in too.....we are here to learn about the secrets of the outside world and our soul too....those who don't learn ,live futile lives.....All nature is an open book ....we just have to 'observe and interpret'..... loved this poem Richard...:)))))))))

    What a wonderful message here....and so worthy yes....how often we just roll along without a second thought, without taking the time to observe and interpret. There is so much, we may miss if we don't slow down, and drink it in!
