Nothing remains the same;
atoms break down, rebuild and reconstruct
over and over again.
‘Plus ca change; plus c’est la meme chose.’
The letter you might have written,
what would have changed by sending it?
You unburden yourself of some feeling
anger maybe, love perhaps,
What really changes?
Sometimes cogs shift a gear
in the universe of our experience and a light goes on.
Step off the escalator, step back on.
You are not where you were.
We are carried forward into the darkness
again and again. Like peas in a drum
we rattle the cage of the Universe
and are back where we began.
A wondrous energy .
flows with us. Everything changes
and remains the same.
