Divine complements

What Divine Artisan
constructed this branch
to follow the exact angle of the roof;
carefully positioned its dark stroke of charcoal
at a 90 degree angle from these benches?

Who saw that opposites,
red and green,
you and I,
might be softened
by a season together
into pink and jade --

one so delicate and fragile,
the other so solid, so enduring --
a perfect combination,
that even on a cloudy day
finds balance,
