Treasure Island

Andy Caldwell


Expanded Horizons


no one sees this world as I do
no one shares my point of view
and my paradigms aren't another's 
they are unique to me- my own
most everyone has their own
or they borrow from others
it depends on their thinking.
is it/are they independent
or are their thoughts not their own
but great minds think in parallel
as they uncover facts not known
as we add to common knowledge pools
as we shrink the great unknown
as a world of cultures what we know
is a complex mixture of truth and myth
there are many facts we simply missed
we will discover new country
as we expand the horizons
of what humanity knows
we will find that God is waiting
ready to take us home
what many belief as truth today
false paradigms will be torn astray
and our mistakes in thinking
will be examined and repaired that day

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
