Change



Change



Underneath
our thoughts-

Waves break
the current changes
we remain steadfast
dropping anchor
foolish in thinking

we won’t be swept away
to some unknown island

where all is new and unforgiving
earth remembers the past and from
its depth haunts our loneliness.

Still we question “why”?
Sky is silent
Sea is still
Only the shifting sands tell 
we must change.

  2. change is ever present...asking why only fills the gap, giving us something to do with our time...as if there were answers that might make us feel better

  3. Change can be so hard, and yet there are times when we must. You always have such a poignant thread through your poetry Lisa. Love your voice.

  5. So true, Lisa. Life is constantly changing and we have to learn to adapt ... though it's hard sometimes. Poignant indeed.
