Change

the dried stream 
was once full of life
flora and fauna all around
the dry leaf was once green
not flying here and there
with a provocative gush of wind
the wrinkles were once firm
reinforcing the ego of immortality
the futility of their resistance
to change
irreversibility of physical change
thank God
mental change is reversible
a mind conditioned,
to sway of likes and dislikes
enslaved to addictions
of anger jealousy greed
proliferating a set of actions
and the boomerang chequered
joy or sorrow
happiness or unhappiness
..all to manifest
all around 
a swirling pattern
of living the life
based on the circumvention
of song of likes and dislikes
miles away from equanimity
or liberation
staying firm
in abidance of one's duty
and devotion
Paves the way for repose
a respite in mind
a state of mind
of nothing much
or nothing less
is it steadfastness
in duty,devotion
or right attitude,vision?
a change from within
Yes
a big Yes!

    I love the way you have dealt with the theme of change through this poem. The irreversibility of physical change compared to the reversible nature of mental change is quite thought-provoking. Very well written. πŸ™‚

      Thank you so much , the change that may really reverse the way things are perceived , is the key.The possibilities of reversibility are hopefully not far to seek for understanding the true intent of our lives! Love.
