Moonshine - Poem by Mellisa Salazar

the moon doth shine

some say not as bright

but the moon and the sun

share one lonely light

both forces lend their hands

and guide us to where we shall be

both caressing tops of waves

and shining against the sea

two opposites are one

and two opposites are me

since the earth is round

there’s no polarity

where you shall choose to look

it’s there that you shall be

to give is to receive

because you are not only you

for you are also me

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was inspired by the yin and yang symbol. It represents the oneness that we share with each other and inside of ourselves. It aims to express that contrast is perspective. There is no right or wrong or good or bad. There are different windows to look through, like the facets of a jewel. Every side holds a different truth, but all are apart of creation.
