Looking around at looking around

i don’t often look around,
but when i do,
i notice others looking around.
why do i look around?
why do they look around?
there are no predators near,
at least i hope not.
so why the eyes?
i’ve been grazing the same field,
yet, how things change when looking up.
the ground remains,
the sky is constant,
but this middle view,
how it changes.
it’s hard to eat from the ground
and keep one’s eyes level.
how can one admire the stars
while keeping track of what’s in front?
