Just Within Reach

In honor of National Poetry Month, we asked our Facebook Fans to help us write a poem– and what a poem they wrote!  Not only is it quite deep at points, but it has also broken a world record!  That’s right–  This poem is now the “Largest Community Poem Written By Facebook Fans On A Fan Page Wall“.  Congratulations to our Facebook Fans!   We picked some of our favorite contributions and pieced them together to create an original work.  Enjoy!

Just Within Reach by Our Facebook Fans

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
My dreams transform into beautiful realities
And the beautiful sands of the beach…
its beauty takes away my speech

But see, all this beauty is tangible,
what’s happens when you search beneath?

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
may the sun shine, flowers bloom, and birds sing for you each
as towards happiness you reach

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
it is like you; still too far away.
I close my eyes and go back to sleep!
the impossible is nothing to me!!

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
My dreams are closer
Each dream, each goal
I count each like shining stars in the sky awaiting them to fall
Now that they’re in reach, I embrace each.

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
So now the sun is gone
and the moon shines on these calm waters
and the sight of this beach has me at a loss for words

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
My dreams are never too wide nor too narrow.
I look up at the night sky and dream the impossible dream!
Hoping that one day it will come true!!!

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
I find myself only being able to teach.
To teach all I’ve learned and done, for that day the blue sky decides to come.
To come and enlighten the dark mist beneath, to overcome the blade in the sheath.

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
I reach up, on tippy toes, and bring it down down down,
and wrap the sky around me like a blanket of blue and fluffy clouds

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
I see the life I have lived in ages passed
and the life I want to live in the unknown future.

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
In what world is the sky blue?
the world is boundless, it’s secrets are at my fingertips waiting to be discovered.
A wonder to behold, the sky; constant through the ages with beauty never ceasing.

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
…I set my sights to horizons beyond.
Oh, what glorious new worlds may I yet find,
if only I put forth the effort to seek?

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
I close my eyes and to nature I preach.
I thank the day for the happiness it brings
and the wind for the bell that rings….

As the blue sky hangs just within reach,
to the winds I listen, my heart to teach.
If something so vast can hold something so strong
yet keep it invisible but still so whole,
maybe I can learn to love like the wind,
powerful over all but soft like a soul.

As the blue sky hangs just within reach,
I think of all that I have achieved, and know there are no limits to what I can be
I live for the dreams, peace and serenity, for spring is in the air and love is all around.

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
my breath caught as I extend,
two pale arms
to pluck a star.

Beauty unmatched
The new spring grass sings
The moon dances just above
You whisper my name

Heaven has a face
Your arms encircle
I feel so small, like the world could break me
You…you make me strong

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
I look up at the sun. . . Dreaming the American Dream
the morning sun caresses my cheek. The wind blows through the trees whispering all of our dreams.

As the birds take flight on majestic wings.Beauty unmatched,
the new spring grass sings,
the moon dances just above,
you whisper my name.

As the blue sky hangs just within reach
I remember your eyes diving into my soul
I’m surrounded by the soft meadow and the smell of lilies
It takes me back to when you made me feel whole…

As the blue sky hangs just within reach; I think of thee.
Mine heart is filled with sorrow and melancholy.
