They say that change is our only constant, and the statement carries truth, especially in modern times. As we have become used to social media, AI has reared its head, ugliness being subjective. Life changes at a frenetic pace.

There's nothing we can do about transformation. However, we can approach it with a positive perspective that benefits all.

How do we cope with change? We assess the situation and turn it to our advantage. We open ourselves to new possibilities,focus on what we can control and give ourselves time to manage the changes.

We can all be butterflies. Enjoy these butterfly cinquains. 


A butterfly

From the caterpillar

A pretty form, so strange and new



Butterfly flits from leaf to leaf

Thinking only of the

Swaying foilage

To eat


The butterfly

Flies so from dawn to dusk

Its time to scour for greens well-used



The butterfly now grasps the 

Stem of the new flower

Its buds about

To bloom.
