Change

Change is the only constant

Holding space between the no longer and not yet

An amplification of all emotions pervades in this transition period

Noticing everything in microscopic detail

Getting out of my own way proves challenging

Each step a new lesson in being here now

 

Tonight’s Poetics prompt hosted by me at dVerse is all about change. Why not pop over and submit a poem of your own. We’re a welcoming bunch.

    I love this line: “Holding space between the no longer and not yet” and this too “Getting out of my own way proves challenging

    Each step a new lesson in being here now”

    Very wise, Paul: ‘Change is the only constant’.I agree that ‘Getting out of my own way proves challenging / Each step a new lesson in being here now. Good luck with everything that is going on in your life.

    I love your prompt, and the brevity of your poem nails it. I, of course, was fired up and somewhat more verbose. Thanks for hosting & stoking my fires.

    Paul, you wrap the reader in that innate wisdom that we all resist. Thank you for that! Nice changes have crept into your blog space, as well. (You tempted us all with your talk of positive change – hope you will be sharing those good things with your friends as time rolls along. Congrats on the adventures finding you!)

    “Change is the only constant”

    I remember exactly nine years ago in my newborn days of spiritual awakening, I became entranced by E=mc^2, but only c meant change, and whether it was a perceived by me or by the world as positive or negative change, because it was raised to the degree of itself, God would always use the energy generated positively. Just an old contemplation, but it did help enormously in trusting God get me through traumatic experiences.

    Frank beat me to this: “Getting out of my own way proves challenging” Truest of you truthful lines. I used to collect jokes about change; mainly because I embrace it. How many Californians does it take to change a light bulb? Ten. One to change it, and nine to share the experience, man!

    I will hear about your changes… in the drums.

    it’s that breath, held, the essence of stepping into the flow – or not – and as everyone else has shared, most excellent piece. May all your changes continue to bring you smiles and continued adventures of the best kind.
