Y is for… Yes
~ by Laurel Regan

For background on how and why I got involved in both NaPoWriMo and the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post… and, if you’d like to catch up on my progress to date, my challenge posts are tagged with Poetry from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll return!)

Blogging from A to Z April (2010) Challenge - Y

as is my recalcitrant wont
when presented with
opportunities that might involve
risk
work
sacrifice
i always demanded
a rationale:
why should i?

as was your impulsive spirit
when presented with
contrariness in the form of
life-limiting
knee-jerk
negativity
you always countered with
a question:
why not?

it began to sink in

i listened
swapped my go-to default
NO
for an optimistic
YES

and watched my world
transform

Are you participating in any April challenges?
