Yin and Yang

Yin and Yang

That energetic side of us prompts us to discover
what our  lazier side prefers  we just keep under cover.
At different stages of our lives, one part assumes control.
That part keeps us busy, while the other takes the role
of hideaway and hermit—our protection from excesses
of “to do” lists, agendas, calendars and stresses.
So do our two selves partner up to execute a dance.
When one leads, we live safely, with the other, take a chance.
In this way we find a balance between “do” and “be,”
leaving room for “I” within the wider world of “we.”

Word prompts for the day are stage, discover, energetic and protection.

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.
