The Marriage of Dark & Light

How fertile is the deepest dark

how inspirational the bright.

And yet, if there is only light

then we are blinded

scorched and afraid

and if only darkness

then we are blinded

frozen and afraid. 

Light loves shade

just as darkness

loves starlight and moon glow.

Unadulterated yet united

two who are one, the same and different; 

at the heart of mystery

they stand face to face

transforming contradiction.
