some changes we don't mind

Meet the tree
out back of the church.
My office window
perfectly frames this
changing piece of art.

mostly we don't like it.

But some change
we embrace.

Whether we like change or not
we spend a whole lot of life
talking about it.

We want change.
We don't want change.
Why have you changed?
If things change I'm leaving.

And guess what...
Whether or not
you embrace change
or push it away....
whether or not you
stay or leave...
will change.

And like this beautiful
tree outside my office window
some of the change
will result in

I pray for change but when it happens I try to run away.
