Two into One

“Two into One”

Moonlit strangers
Dawn endangers
Two cups spilt

Winter chimed
Wings aligned
Two coins laid

Songs spun
Prayers undone
Two tears drop

Empty day
Dreams a way
Two flowers fly

Moonlit strangers
Dawn endangers
Two into one

I wanted to share one of my recent poems with you all. It is an ode to duality, I suppose— a profession of love and a tale of our affair.

Duality is not something we escape exactly. It is natural... when it is natural. And so it is something we dance with, and if we choose to love it—to surrender and accept it—we can merge with it just like a lover. Two become one.

This is the medicine we bring to duality—love. It is in our love affair with it that we transcend it— from separation to surrender and into the sweetness of union. No matter the duality—masculine and feminine, death and life, dark and light—they all meet in the middle: in that juicy center where emptiness and fullness seamlessly collide, and the place from which their perfect polarity spring.

The funny thing is... I wrote this on New Year’s Eve, intending a love letter to 2019. Perhaps this year is going to be a time in which we all surrender the duality—born in our wound of separation, and step into the center of its polarity—magnetized but uncharged; and begin to dance with it as we were meant to— with love and as love.

Cheers to that.
