08. Fire And Ice - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

fire
passion

ice
estrangement

ying
the cold

yang
warmth

sun
cheerfulness

moon
melancholy reigns

between she and him
a lane
each agrees
to walk negotiating
fire and ice

ying, yang
sun, moon

both knowing
that the human world
has evolved
in between these opposites

and in between
they would survive
and grow, procreate
