A Hymn to Flux
by Steve Cook
In a universe that's eternally changing,
Everything's becoming something else,
Altering, mutating and evolving
By quantum leaps transmuting
Or by incremental stealth.
By nature fundamental or even thought divine,
When the gods we were devised the game,
Was the first rule of reality with finality assigned
That nothing ever remains the same.
Search with cosmic telescopes or microscopes most fine
You'll find ne'er less there's nothing that does not change.
Embrace it then and learn to ride the ebb and flow of tides,
Weigh the anchor to your fate that held you fast,
For the bridge was made to cross, ne'er to tarry nor reside
So laughing kiss the fickle dice you cast.
For each adventure spent, a new one just ahead abides
And in victory or defeat remember: it will pass.
