Yin and Yang

I am the light that longs for the dark
I am the shallow that yearns for the deep
Earth and sky, snow and sand, desert and ocean
The opposite that combine to make a whole
Gentle and fierce, strong and weak, love and hate
War and peace, youth and age, foolish and wise
Envy and content, sad and happy, birth and death
Twirling together creating the dance of life
Men and women a creation of yin and yang
Opposites belonging completing the whole
A never ending circle in time and space

    You are all thing good Lizzie, is that yin or yang or are those things opposites? Well, a little bird told me opposites attract so you are a winner on all fronts! Hugs to you with a big soupmail.
