Yin and yang


AtoZ2019Y

Its April of 2019 and Day 25 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: yin and yang
Language: Chinese
Meaning: is a concept of dualism in ancient Chinese philosophy, describing how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.

Poem:
the day light parse,
the night deep crawls,
it wasn’t sure,
in the cycle of cycles,
what was yin,
what was yang,
for they both,
perfected each other.

Interpretation:
Amidst the ‘day you’ and ‘night you’, ‘you’ matters the most! The ‘yin and yang’ here already carries a deep philosophy!

Note: below is the iconic representation of ‘yin and yang’ and you must have sure noticed it somewhere before.
