Life

~~~~
A cold shoulder,
A warm hug.
An icy smile,
An affectionate touch.

A strong hand,
A bare smug.
A comforting presence,
A resounding absence.

Many a doors opened,
And a quite few closed.
Lots of love to brew,
A cold morning, without dew.

A desert storm,
A warm shower.
Flakes of snow,
Dark in the night, they glow.

A spirit to belie,
Causes strife, so silly.
Sharp as a knife,
All this is Life.

P.S. Life is a contradiction. Life is an antithesis.

  10. And if that is not the all of life, it may well be the most important part.
