Yin Yang wilderness

This is our untamed wilderness
the yin yang of our landscape
our day sighs while evening creeps
sunny warmth turns dark and cold
dim shades and chilly grimness grows
eating away joy’s hues in autumn glow

this is us in a rich vivid display
a truthful rendition in color of
emotions in contradiction
mere puzzlement of intent
a quagmire of uncertainty
a paradox of intentions

consider, contemplate
this picture complete
so precisely balanced
flawlessly composed
impeccably captured
magnificence defined

black night is fast approaching
will reap the day, bury us soon
and I ponder the cycle of love
yin so worthless without yang
is it just me or does all of this
still deliver a spectacular image?

What is yin without yang?

The moment I saw this image I immediately fell in love with the diagnonal contrasting tones : warm light vs cool shade.
It reminded me of the contrasts that exist within relationships, the same contrasts that contributes to deep, lasting bonds in personalities that complement one another…yin and yang!

A simply perfect capture by photographer
Andy Gibb

Thank you, Andy for allowing me to use this image
