This poem is an allegory rich with 'opposites' symbolism. It is based on our world of duality, which is an illusion masking the underlying unity of all things. Interestingly, the late artist (Sulamith Wulfing) painted all the artwork you see, long before I ever wrote the poem. And I wrote the poem long before I ever saw her artwork. I was so amazed at the apparent marriage between my words and her art, proving all the more that we are all interconnected. We don't need to understand how this is... we just need to notice it, and thus begins the journey of awakening. I hope you enjoy.
