The Perspectives of Change

Updated on May 26, 2011

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.

      Ruby, you make me smile! Thank you, my dear friend! This held a message for me personally, during this time of topsy turvy change as we regroup. It is my privilege to share the message. Hugs!

      Change can be so frightening yet a necessary part of life and personal growth so why not change our perspective? Very positive approach and great message! Thanks for sharing.

      ...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.
