Change



Change is the kinetic force
That keeps the universe
Moving, expanding, progressing;
Perpetual motion
Propelling us forward,
Creating causes and effects
That ripple through the cosmos.

Change is the filter
That determines our vision.
The significant will surge
Forward in our sight,
The trivial recede from view.

Change is the only certainty
In our spinning worlds of impermanence,
Ending only when we do.

"Change is the only certainty" -- so true! Great use of this prompt, and an eloquent reminder to live in the present moment.

It's so interesting to see all the different stories that are all based on the same four words! I like your story very much.

You've got the point of the vice-versa and you've managed to use all the words with their contrasting meanings to great effect. All the words are in the same stanza.
Well done!

beautiful thoughts on changes.

change itself is both concrete and vague to many.
when actual changes happen, one may miss the old way of how things happen.

no absolute right or wrong on the subject.

These words are so true. Everyday change goes on around us and everyday we are changing, hopefully for the better. We get older and older and the changes are subtle until one day you look in the mirror and you do not recognize the person you see.

Thanks for sharing this with us. And for playing along with us at Theme Thursday. I hope you had fun with "Change". See you next Thursday.

God bless.

Yes indeed, change is the only certainty that we have sometime. Hard to come to terms with sometimes though when we would like things (occasionally) to stay the same for a while!

interesting take on these words - I quite like it and love the picture you've used ... your summing up with "change is the only certainty" could become a mantra ...
