~ Halo of the Sun ~

One day
as you sit and weave
you may muse on warp and weft:
how they mesh their essences, how they fuse their strengths. Warp
so taut
so hard
so straight
so tightly spun
so tightly strung.
Shapes the whole.
Holds the course.
Inner strength
unseen.
Weft conversely is soft and supple.
Gently yielding.
Textured.
Mellow.
Envelops the warp as it twines.
Buffers the core; creates design.
Thus, as always,
two unite.
Opposites
form a whole -
The basis for creativity;
the foundation
for all of life.
