Attitude -- Poetry 2011

Courage an automatic response to crisis

only available if one is not overwhelmed

by worry –

worry is a form of imagination as in

what if.

Without equivocation worry is not equivalent

to imagination

worry is not creative or is it?

Most don’t know how courageous they are…

until;

amazingly mind closes down chatter in some

incidents;

physically holding still while the world spins

away,

clutching the arm rests, pale, silent,

numb,

swirling a beverage cup –

half full or half empty?
