That’s life

As always
comes the reminder
that things change
that all things are
forever in flux

not a single star
is fixed immobile
in the heavens
neither do the heavens
as such exist

our lives are a curve ball
thrown by who knows whom
and each moment is a tussle
between retention and loss

today rain
tomorrow sunshine
the grass greener
the birdsong softer
and love in the air
