No Change is Permanent, but change is.”

I have been repeating this quote in my head all morning.

Change is sitting in our house today.

Change is a friend.

A well known character in our play.

It comes and it goes like a teenager.

It stops and listens

like the ear of a gossip queen.

It knows when to leave-

finding the front door,

sometimes an open window.

Quiet as a fallen feather or as loud as a white water stream.

Change is birth and death-

reborn the second it disolves.

I sometimes close my eyes in

hope  that it is merely an apparition

though deep down we all know that its presence is what makes up our very life.

CHANGE sits in the fleeting time that we find ourselves living every day

the moment we  OPEN to it

is the moment we  CHANGE

you can’t run

you can’t hide

you can’t talk yourself out of its eveloping hands

you have to go to CHANGE like you would go to  your mother

with an OPEN heart hoping  it LOVES you

as much as you want to love it.

I am a self taught photographer and mixed media artist with a degree from the North Carolina School of the Arts in classical theatre performance. Stage was my first love and brought me into the world art while photography is what made me want to stay. I am married to superman, and am the mother of three little super-ducks. I studied creative writing at the Univeristy of Tn and classical drama at the NC School of the Arts, and a Masters in Education with concentration of inclusion and curriculum. I've liived in NYC and LA for the past decade and moved back to TN for some home cooking and back yard fun . I spend most of my days getting little ones through life and playing in my studio. I sell my work through different venues and am really happy where I find myself these days. I love to drink a bottle of wine (with my hubby) coupled with extra cheddar blast goldfish! Having kids has changed my life, the arts has shaped my life, and my soulmate continues everyday to walk through my life beside me. What else could a country city girl like me need.

  1. Sounds like you know the secrets of change, that she has been whispering her wisdom to you. Lovely poem. I am feeling the winds of change so strongly these days but, fortunately, they don’t seem to be of hurricane intensity! Such a beautiful blog you have here.
