Stuff Happens


In our existence

Is the constant flow of change

Stuff is always happening

Or waiting to happen


Sometimes change is signaled

By a lurking sense of apprehension

That gut feeling

Sometimes it’s revealed in lucid dreams

A riddle to be unraveled

Created by the subconscious

Sometimes an angel leaves a feather

Challenging physical reality

Sometimes it’s an unexpected knock

At the door of your consciousness

That signals an inner need to change

Whatever stuff happens

It’s meant for only you


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


“To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.” (Henri Bergson)

    The photographs for this poem are absolutely stunning! The second image almost could be the seagull’s eye. Stuff does happen – you put it so eloquently.

    What an appropriate prompt for you and your blog :). Beautiful images – really stunning – and the poem is as well. Stuff does happen and I appreciate your link to “sometimes” because every time it’s different in some way. I especially like “the unexpected knock….”
