Yin and Yang

Yin and Yang by Judith Myerson

Anything can happen any moment… 
a sudden stroke 
stopping you  
in your tracks 
just where you  
are  
or 
a stroke  
of insight  
that  
opens wide 
a  
million  
possibilities 

Anything can happen any moment… 
a fire 
that burns down your house so all you own 
is gone 
or 
sets you free 
because now 
you have  
nothing  
left  
to lose 

Here  
for just  
a fleeting moment 
in a sudden flash of light all that is 
and once thought 
solid 
vaporizes  

with just one 
flick of switch  
and intention … 
leaving only  
shadow on stone 
and 
the thought 
arising… 
that 

Any moment 
maybe
Anything can happen 

And together  
we will 
look and 
see  
and do  
it  
differently… 

And maybe 
turn  
the world around 
into  
a place 
where…  

Anything can happen

  1. At any moment, I could stumble upon a lovely stack of words that encourages me to keep diving deeper into this mystery we call Life. With great appreciation and gratitude!!!
