“Countless words
Count less
Than the silent balance
Between yin and yang”
– Tao Te Ching c. 600BC

A hill, any hill
Anchored solidly
Upon this spinning earth
Its side facing east
yang side
full of light
its other side
yin side
full of dark

The hill remains
The hill
its shades
its light and dark
defines it
The daily rotation
earth toward sun
reverses the hills
yin and yang

Each side contains
the potential
of its opposite
yin in yang
yang in yin
cycling each day
with earth spin
its base mobile
all in balance
