(untitled) #16

throngs  & throngs

multiply & multiply

yin  & yang

divide

.

to parent or not?

a difficult decision

to burden the world

.

despite overpopulation

in these difficult times

conception

.

in gestation then

a delicate foetus

evolves, matures

.

unavoidably

contractions bring into the world …

haiku anew!

.

In the beginning chaos split into yin and yang. When these split again into greater and lesser yin and greater and lesser yang the combined interaction of these forces produced myriad creatures.

Bill Porter, 1993, The Road To Heaven, Encounters With Chinese Hermits, Rider Books
