Little Miracles 5

…. —Yin Yang Lamps

lamps yin and yang  
I celebrate
your balancing!

dark and light you shine
from faux bronze fluted stands

you do not so much vacillate
you do a soloduo thing

you manage your blaze and shadowing
concurrently.  you palpitate.

from colluding upsidedown
bell-like shades you radiate

your lifelong itch and scratch
good and bad
comforting troubling
is halted only by a fatal switch
at end of lifetime’s juggling
