A Little More

Sitting yesterday in another meeting about visioning for a future to be born out of a changed present, invited, challenged, advised, directed, to think “positive”, I strain against the constraint and wonder why – is it the being told that bothers me?  Or is it “positivity” itself I so reject?  My answer arrives standing outside with a fellow curmudgeon, who invites me to have a bad day as we part, both laughing, both getting the joke.

I am yearning 
for a bit of
Old Testament

a little prophetic
in my vision

a little bigness
in my dreams

a little more God
a little less me

a little more Truth
a little less
the positive

I am yearning
for a little more

as I am asked to
settle yet again
for a little less
