Changes

There are periods in history
When light from God shines
Which would mean
That a great angel is near

It means change for people
It means change so rapid
That new things
Conflict with established ways

Swans among the pigeons
Make the pigeons feel greater
The laundry mangle
Dries old clothes and makes them look like royal garments

What happens to all this love?
It is absorbed into stones like rain
It is absorbed into feelings like light
Then the ebb and flow dissolve the rest
