Intrinsic Freedom

If
There was no change
Not one, not ever

Then everyone
Would see everything
The same

No diversity
Or variance of opinion
Not a single
Artistic interpretation

You know
That's not so
Everything
Is forever changing

As reflects All of Nature
In season and storm
Day or night, now or then
Expected or not

Change
Essential to everyone and everything
Inherent delight of infinite possibility
Our
Intrinsic freedom
