Hemispheres

They fit together like two hemispheres,
one enclosing the other.
Apart from each other, each is broken.
One shoulders the other,
draws her gradually to the light.
When one is warm,
the other is cool.
Each knows day and night,
but neither experiences it fully
at the same moment.
They fit together like two hemispheres,
like oceans and continents.
Neither is whole without the other.
It’s a balancing act,
like tide tugging at the shore.
One cradles the other,
feeds her.
See how they fit together,
day and night,
fullness and hunger,
mother and child.
