Closed on Mondays 

Following instincts can enable ability
to accomplish extraordinary things


Blind optimism can lead us into
unstable territory much like a
closed restaurant when a mind
full of food for thought is needed

(c) Closed on Mondays

The flare in the finish was delectable, Vivian. "...when a mind/full of food for thought is needed." Prancing pony of a poem ~~ Diana

Extraordinary...made me go back and read this over and over, I do trust my instincts, but there have been times I have been blindsided as well..great poem~

Lovely wisdom to contemplate...
Reviewed by Rory Dall (Reader) 9/18/2012
It's funny how a few well penned lines can make you stop and examine the meaning of words. Many of us would admit to defining instinct and optimism fairly synonymously. On reflection they are miles apart as you cleverly point out.

Splendid thoughts of philosophical optimism.
A day of shopping and oh my, the lovely resturant is

Amen! I've been known to follow that blind optimism down some pretty sticky situation. Some even dangerous. After all that I still, at these my declining years have to guard against it. Good philosophical writing, Vivian.
Reviewed by D. Vegas 9/17/2012
Enjoyed throughly,Vivian...I'm sure most of us have experienced that blindness that takes us out of our realm into another with all kinds
of consequences.
