change – solc #15

Change

minds constantly readjusting

inevitable transformation

 

Husband

new position of increased responsibility

deserved reward

 

Daughter (and Son-in-Law)

new home with needed space and dreams fulfilled

hopeful desire

 

Son

college graduation and seeking employment

promising future

 

Colleague

husband’s new job, moving across the country

exciting adventure

 

Friend

death of sister, aging mother

challenging sadness

 

Self

retirement looming, pursuing new interests

exciting possibilities

 

Future

speeding towards us, here tomorrow

clearing vision

 

God

providing guidance, answering prayers

reassuring Peace

    What a beautifully written piece of work. I love the layout you used to talk about each individual person. It made me think… what would I write about myself!

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. I love the positive tone of this poem about change.

    As for you, perhaps there is a book of poems in your future.

    What a wonderful way to mark the changes in the lives around you – and you net the happy and sad, just as real life is.

    Change is something we all face every day. You capture it beautifully.

  5. I love that the structure of this piece remains constant in the face of all of the change.

    Thank you for sharing your poetry. I hope to try my hand before the month ends. I have ridiculous numbers of words to get out first, it seems.
