What’s New?

What’s New?


Old friend! How long’s it been?

…. Not much. You?


Getting old is all that’s new.

Hair’s gone gray; added pounds, inclined to stay.


Isn’t it strange, our focus on what’s changed?

We might ask, what still holds True?

What remains for us to Do?




The prompt for Quadrille #71 at dVerse Poets’ Pub is: “The changing of the guards. Spare change. Positive change. Change your clothes. Change your attitude. Change your life. Changed. Changeability. Changing. You could even go a little creepy on us, and write about a changeling. Whatever you write, just be sure it’s 44 words, and includes some alteration of the word change.”  Thank you De Jackson for pouring.

  1. Interesting reflection. Our bodies grow old. Hopefully, our minds don’t do the same. I’m sure the young ones see it though.
    Your reflection is an interesting response to the prompt. Well done.

    • Wow, thanks. I was unsure about this one. Played with a weird rhyme pattern. But, yeah, I was sure about that line; when we find ourselves older and maybe even with some same good friends, isn’t what has stayed the same more interesting than what hasn’t?
      Thanks for the prompt and the comments.
