Extensions - Poem by Ben Gieske

We reach for the sky
................with our eyes
Always the limits
................we defy

We travel so many miles
................with feet that are wheels
The miles fly swiftly by
................we love how that feels

Our fingers reach and touch so many
................even though they’re not nearby
To them our messages we send
................emails and faxes hence do fly

Our ears surf waves then many voices
................even far across the open seas
Who could ever have imagined
................that it could be done with such ease

But when will there be peace
That peace where all can meet
Sincere extensions of loving hearts
So many things keep us apart
