On Creation

Why we’re made to process creativity and art

only in one direction - in, through, or out -

is a baffling question.

My only answer to this is that we can parallel

“in, through, and out” to happy, middled, and sad,

or dark and light.

Without one, how could the other(s)

possibly exist?

Can we know what it is to share our creation,

never having received?

Could we possibly receive and comprehend a piece of art,

having never tried our own hand at it?

Knowing and not knowing.

Here, also, this universal law of opposites weaves

into our original question, itself.
