Contrary Twins

Day enlivens quickening life after a dark night
Yet night is comforting after a stressful busy day
So, both are welcome in their own unique way!
Love and hate are two power packed emotions
Each goads to conquer insurmountable hurdles
Love is sublime yet channeled hate wins wars
Petite or short, grand or tall are opposites of sorts
Each giving unique perspective to full spectrum of situations
Life throbs n ebbs at all levels and is meaningful at each rung
Parents of both genders are equally important in life
A mother, the mainstay of home nurtures in every way
A father provides discipline n wherewithal holding sway
Good luck and bad luck do indeed have great value
A run of good luck makes one lazy and quite careless
Bad luck driven try harder taking nothing for granted
Wealth and poverty also make an interesting disparate pair
One breeds disdain, a blasé attitude whilst other abject despair
Market vagaries are wealth’s nightmare yet leave cold the threadbare



The beginning, middle, and end of the birth, growth, and perfection of whatever we behold is from contraries, by contraries, and to contraries; and whatever contrariety is, there is action and reaction, there is motion, diversity, multitude, and order, there are degrees, succession and vicissitude.
Giordano Bruno 1548-1600, Italian Philosopher, Scientist


Every sweet has its sour; every evil its good.
Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803-1882, American Poet, Essayist
Light is meaningful only in relation to darkness, and truth presupposes error. It is these mingled opposites which people our life, which make it pungent, intoxicating. We only exist in terms of this conflict, in the zone where black and white clash.
Louis Aragon French, Poet

Fantasy love is much better than reality love. Never doing it is very exciting. The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet.
Andy Warhol American, Artist
