Balancing Between

Where is my partner in the rhythm
Of searching and being found
From darkness to radiance
Between crying out and quieting within
Of lowest lows and highest highs
From control to surrender
Between structure and freedom

Of certainty and mystery
From comfort to risk
Between what’s seen and what could be
Of home and elsewhere
From bliss to desperation
Between the lack and the overflow

Of connection and longing
From words to actions
Between knowing and being known
Of pain and healing
From past to present
Between fear and love

Of settledness and adventure
From apathy to passion
Between the silence and the shouts of joy
Of shallow streams and deep oceans
From the notes to the music
Between the step and the dance

Of thinking and being
From stagnant to moving
Between body and spirit
Of accelerating and waiting
From death to life
Between the fast and the feast
There is my partner in the rhythm
