Dynamic Duos

under over weaving

inhale exhale breathing

ticking tocking gears

assuming, assuaging fears

ebbing flowing tides

pro and con – two sides

to and fro-ing trees

stillness? maybe breeze

count and counter points

bending – straightening joints

sinking low : rising soar

getting some, giving more

awake or deep asleep

too shallow or too deep

bit quiet or smidge noise

ache sorrows, holy joys

frenetic time or rest

horrible or best

Piece of cake or challenging,

these the changes life will bring.

darken lighten

soothing frighten

black then white

sure or might

high – low

come. go.

What?

You say it isn’t true?

Hey, look –

perhaps the change is you.

  1. Beautiful. First I loved the ebb and flow of language in your poem. Second I loved the ebb and flow of meaning in your poem. It had both a soothing and disquieting lilt to it. Beautiful!

  2. Holy smoke! I love the play of opposites–and unlikely nondualities that lie within. My favorite line: “ache sorrows, holy joys”–right at the core of our being.
