“Change,” A Quadrille

The full cold moon
  abides the darkness of night
  where moonbeams light up the sky 
  with silver little-girl dreams,
  to remind us of how most things 
  never stay the same.
  Change is the catalyst. 
  Follow your intuition to find
  your correct path to joy.

  1. Poet, you’ve brought me some tears to my eyes. Isn’t this what we all want from life?

    “Change is the catalyst.
    Follow your intuition to find
    your correct path to joy.”

    So very true. Thank you for sharing your wonderful, beautiful words.

  2. I love the immediate focus on the ‘full cold moon’, Colleen, a reminder that, although the moon is constant, ‘most things never stay the same’.

  3. It’s wise to follow the small inner voice, which is intuition. It’s a never-failing moral compass.

    1. Beverly, you are so correct. As I get older those old dreams resurface and remind me to be me. I listen to my intuition all the time. It’s always spot on, too. The times I’ve not listened, I’ve paid for dearly. ❤


  4. “Silver little girl dreams” is the perfect way of describing what we leave behind as a consequence “change”. Beautifully expressed under “the full cold moon” but I’m glad the last note is one of joy. 🙂
