Poetry Prompts Day 13 - OctPoWriMo 2016

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” ― Alan W. Watts

Change is usually difficult and you'd think by now I'd know that the best way to maneuver it would be to stop fighting the changes and just go with the flow, but it seems it is my life's mission to learn the hard way.

  1. #OctProWriMo Day 13 Post.

  2. Here's my offering for today. Still have to get the 12th's in. Challenging!

    Ain't It Sublime

  3. I honestly don't do very well with change. I have a tendency to resist it.
    I love your colorful fish!

  4. lovely photos of waterfall and fish :)

    1. Two of my passions, photography and doodling/coloring. Thank you!

  5. I'm not one to just lay back and take it, so to speak. I am horrible with change. I like to know what is going to happen, no surprises. I like the known over the unknown. I can't defend myself against what I don't know. My biggest struggle is trust and, I guess, this is because I don't know what a person might do to do me in. The wall is up.

    Sorry to ramble there. Here is my post example of when things didn't "flow" as desired:
    OctPoWriMo Day 13

    Have a blessed day!

    1. Yeah, I'm so not great with change anymore, I think I used to be a lot better at it. I think I'm right there with you in the trust issue. And you can ramble anytime! =)

    2. I'm sorry that you have trust issues, too. It is something so very easily broken, and nearly impossible to fix.

      Thank you. I appreciate the ramble permission. :)
      Have a great weekend!

  6. Finally, a poem that is not so dark! When I Quilt . . . We're nearly half way already. Write to cherish each day.
