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,
for all to see,
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!
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.
