Artist's Description

totally different
we live side by side
one bright and light
the other’s beauty can’t be denied

though we’re very different
as black and white
chalk and cheese
such is life

all the same
would boring make
stale and bland
what a mistake

so we’re cousins of contrast
yet cousins all the same
with much in common
and not just in name

our roots are in
the very same ground
we come from the earth
and to earth we are bound

we stand tall in the sun
and bow with the wind
we shine brightest in light
we need the same things

light of the sun
sweet water to drink
moisture and food
space to grow and to think

so though we are different
yet we’re the same
contrasting cousins
in more than just name
