the same river,
flowing around you changing as you step.
Each moment changing, evolving; growing.
When you step out
you are not
Poem #26 for National Poetry Writing Month (aka #NaPoWriMo)

The image is a detail from Raphael’s School of Athens featuring Heraclitus, whose features are based on those of Michelangelo.
And, for those keeping track, this is my 200th post on this blog.
