Twinning

And of certain leaves
it can be said
that one side shines
and the other coarse
one pleases eye,
the other too dull to note
one to touch, the other to forget
one for the mirroring of smile
and the other for spider-web ,
and time and wind
whisper and love,
dust-coat and benevolence
decree:
these un-identical twins
were born conjoined
at the hip of truth
and thus too will they perish.

*inspired by the photography of Hiranya Malwatta
