The Perspectives of Change

Source

A Matter of Perspective

Is it coming or going,
in wax or in wane?
To the man in the moon
it's all one and the same.

The opining perspective
is unique to the eye
that pauses to notice
the moon in the sky.

As the ebb and the flow
of the vast ocean tide
caresses the shoreline
in rhythmic glide...

Once again, it's perspective
that steps into place,
amends by who sees
the wave's transient face.

Its all about change
never static or stale...
that adds to the interest,
adds blush to the pale.

Its the singular chorus
through the overall theme...
Change is perspective,
Life's orchestral scheme.

...well you always put me in perspective here in knowing that I am reading the poetic work of a great writer.

And here I am on a Wednesday evening around 10:30 pm thinking about you, and your family and your beloved son.

Drop me a line please and let me know if there are any updates.
