A while back, my daughter received a bouquet of flowers after singing in her school show.
As they graced the kitchen table, I notice a bright beam of light leading the eye to
A bud holding the fuzzy promise of hope to come —
In stark contrast to the unfurled beauty of a tulip already in full bloom.
I took the bouquet outside
Into the gentle snow,
And enjoyed the yin of the white snowflakes
On the yang of the rich red petals.
Suddenly, my philosophical mood was broken
By Oscar photobombing my photo session.
But I guess that’s what yin and yang is all about —
Complementary forces (even if it is just a dog’s tail)
Forming harmony to remind us
That we are all part of a greater whole.
