Evolve

by Absolutely*Kate

We are given the shadows and the light, both equidistant to themselves. It's not choosing either. It's finding out both are of equal sum of significant value. Mirrors and illusion give way to trust and inner-know. As nature abhors vacuum, lessons vortex in - the more we open, the more they flow. Evolve spins eons in a day.

Provocative and unusually spare for you, but still poetry in motion. Peace, Linda

this phrase:
"both equidistant to themselves"
confused me.

Truly loved the concept, though. And aptly titled.

Shadows and light highlight this balanced piece of prose.

Excellent.

In the space between shadow and light lies the beauty of this piece. Solid Six.

AK~How does one sigh so that a friend can hear? This is framed and posted in my office...a testament-a sigh to you-and the light you shine as I watch you from the shadow...

Forever Evolving,

A gem that manifests the duality that all feel by revealing its
soul-filling wonder.

Bravo Kate,

Great six and great POV. Tight and concisely written - a lot of depth in the things that are said and not said. Well done.

Lao Dan, at the gate was asked to write his wisdom. He replied "no need, just wait for Kate." And here she is.

Shadows are created by the absence of light, the more light, the more possible absence. I love the light, it nourishes me. I need the shadow, it evolves me. Can an eon be in a day? It can if you are one with tao. Evolve.

Read this three times. Reading it again. A sign of its magnetism. And probably something else. Llongyfarchiadau! (Congratulations)

I'm adding this to my personal spiritual journal (a BOS to those who would recognize the term). This is guidance as well as poetry.

I've read this before, but thank you for sending me here tonight. I needed this tonight as I bump up against the dark needed for my light.
