Small Change, Big Changes

All we’ve come to know
And thought secure
Comes undone
Nothing is sure
I feel for you young children
Ripped from hearth, friends
Rolling down hills, valleys extend
Far beyond physical realms

Here you grew in redwoods’ shadow
Stopped for sounds of Canadian Geese
Heading south, "V" pattern
When rustic autumn came
Golden afternoons melted into
Cool darkness, town so small
Walked to dinner with friends

Casual, never really permanent
This place has that kind of feel
As though everyone waits
For when they must leave
Not a normal place

Not diversified, not reality
And yet, a certain caring
Community spirit

Beauty of range horses
Streams running freely
Cattle that still roam
So close to the bustle
Yet a world away.

A comfortable trap
Birds in gilded cages all
But, the real world awaits
Time to join up, my precious ones
Once again

With a promise it will never be dull.

Sounds like a change in the wind for the speaker, with new exciting challenges coming.

You know. I didn't realize you had been here for so long, Lady. I don't believe I've ever read this. Enjoyed what I found on my treasure quest.

I will not bend to the cowardice of a silent judgement.
