Sun or Moon and Smooth or Rough


Opposites make the world go round! And certainly make it more interesting, if not always comfortable. For dVerse Poets.

lifelessons - a blog by Judy Dykstra-Brown


Sun or moon and smooth or rough,
old or young and clothed or buff––
opposites contrast each other––
tough or easy, breathe or smother.
Shadows can be made with light,
though sun is opposite of night.
Sarcasm depends on this:
words that praise, but really diss.
Life consists of contrasts that
give yin for yang and tit for tat.
If you can’t find a life to fit,
just change into its opposite!
Reach for the hidden, release the found.
Contrasts make the world go round.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Love the rhyming scheme and I totally agree that one should change to a completely opposite life, if one is not satisfied with his or he’s current life.

    LOVING your take on this….the rhythm and rhyming really add to the mood of it also. The illustration is fantastic! And these lines
    “Sarcasm depends on this:
    words that praise, but really diss.” Have never thought of sarcasm as contained within the realm of opposites but it truly is!
    And love that last line! 🙂
