Passive/Aggressive

Urgency and age, well acquainted
Is it Celestine, this draw
or a fateful sense of lacking?

Time ticks a cringeworthy rhythm
insists I pay attention – Fine!
say I, lingering over a defiant tea

Passive is my denial
aggressive is the fear
Tomorrow, I tell myself.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Ah, love that line…lingering over a defiant tea. It touched a cord in me, and now that beautiful description will come to me when I know I should be doing something other than sipping a lovely herbal brew. Thanks so much!
