POETRY IS FOR SUNDAY: Two Sides

There are two sides to every story;
the yin, the yang,
the light, the dark,
yours, mine.
Caught in the middle?
What to do?
Flip a coin?
Act noncommittal?
Best of all nonjudgmental?
Please judge lightly.
The sentence can last a lifetime.

Do look up for some sizzling pics of a tribal ethnic yearly festival on the front courtyard of my ancestral house last night.

The Theyyam as it is called closes today after three days and nights of drums and gods and fire and dancing.
