Pairs of Opposites

I was born to bridge
the pairs of opposites,
to span the apparent
distance between light
and dark, joy and sorrow.

I exist to see past
differences, to open my
arms so wide that all
I can see and know and
be is inside my reach.

I am here to give and
receive love; so closely
attuned to All That Is
that breathing is an act
of passionate attraction.

I am not caught, but
freed by the seeming
contradictions between
seer and seen, knower
and known.

In the tidal ebb and flow
between lover and beloved
I explore the rugged
coastline of surrender.
