Without experiencing the cold
what revel in
the relief of warmth?

Without the isolation of solitude
what welcome to
the stimulation of companionship?

If there were only light
how would we know to close
our eyes? marvel at the
ying and yang?

Without first knowing fear
in adversity's face
what knowledge would we gain
of our resilience?

If there were no regretted risk
of leave takings
how could we savor reunion,
believe in the need
to cherish those we have,
or to turn again
to old or new encounters
we will honor better
after all

If the path was never overwrought
with brambles and burdocks
how would our feet recognize
the glory of
a smooth route?
