Ying Yang Moon

Photographer: Genie Nakano, 2016

darkness, lightness
yin yang, yang yin
we have many lives

beaming down
on my skin a silver moon…
how can needs be fulfilled
when what is wanted
is not needed

a turtle floated
to the island’s shore
years ago
my father rode on his back
to the bottom of the sea

waves rolling
across the sand
just a dream
soft and tender
I believe in Miracles

an ocean
shimmering with anima
pulls back and forth
back and forth…
make your foot prints now.

Genie Nakano,
originally published in my book, “Colorful Lives”, 2016

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.

  1. Thank you Victoria. I absolutely love your responses. Ying Yang Moon is from the last book I wrote–“Colorful Lives”. It is a coloring book–illustrated by Alvin Takemori. I know you will like it.The illustrations are exquisite. I will try to post some more of Colorful Lives.
