altar of alterations

Change is the certainty of life —

we (un)certainly hold choice in our hands:

to fear strangeness of change,


to face love’s changing challenge;

to hide from (unfamiliar) monsters


to seek soul (familiar) opportunities

to shrink


to grow!

As we embrace each (minor) moment’s exchange,
we may become (major) catalysts for change:

watch butterflies emerge

encourage spirit’s surge

relieve evil’s scourge.

One must learn to trust the unchangeable One

who forms life

transforms change

conforms us

until his perfect (and perfecting) will be done.

    Change is sometimes difficult to contemplate as happy and safe we become in standing still. At present I am happy with standing still.

    Are you using corporate language here (the highlighted words) – or am I merely obsessed with such terminology after several days of training about change? I especially loved that terzet which changed the whole rhythm and sound of the poem:watch butterflies emerge

    encourage spirit’s surge

    relieve evil’s scourge.
