Duality

Duality

Caterpillar 

Seeking the boundary 

To cross over to new self

Grief ensues in changes 

In between two selves

As one face is shorn

For the other and

Old ways expire but

 

Death is an illusion as 

One self is torn away and

Transfigured into a new mystery

Incarnation

 

Butterfly, the math for transformation

Two sides to the equation

Both in perfect summation

Symmetrical wings

Lifting each self into

One and the same soul

 

The face of the soul

Is faceted 

From one life to a new one

The grotesque becomes magnificent

In its symmetry 

The soul grows through grief

Into gossamer wings

 

One soul

Two selves

One is shed for

Transcendence

And the other

Ascends out of 

Duality.

The Beautiful Equation

 

My father liked to pun, so this is for him on Father’s Day! Ironically, he wasn’t a fan of Math, but he would appreciate this.

The Beautiful Equation

Sometimes you may feel separated,

As though not integral or

Just a mere fraction.

But you are the one sum.

There is no math better

Than your axioms.

If only you could be multiplied.

How much grander would the total be

And how much more logical the world.

You are a unique matrix, and

You shine with symmetry in your design.

You are your own beautiful equation.
