Altitude And Attitude - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Our attitude changes how we perceive
And are perceived
Altitude can do the same
From standing view we see our world
As immense, diverse and transient
Atop a skyscraper, it seems to shrink
Into an ant farm
From six miles high in a jet
The world is a coloring book
And from the moon it is clear
One small planet, blue against the black
One rare home to all life
No artificial borders
Just our Earth
Adjust your attitude
Achieve altitude

    Beautifully.... down to Earth.... The imagery is just wonderful,
    .....One small planet, blue against the black.....
    And all the others.
    Optimistic, ..Just our Earth. Adjust your attitude...
    Enjoyed!

    It is amazing how seeing our little jeweled planet against the immensity of the dark vacuum puts everything into perspective. Not 200 some countries but one world.

    A round-about way,
    and a good reason why
    to say, 'Get high.'
