The bacteria is whole
But can only reproduce itself
There is no new creation
only multiplication

The bacteria splits
Into two unlike but dependent parts
The male and the female are conceived
Lonely, in search of the other

Upon reunification
there is the birth of the third
Creation is assured

Embrace your loneliness
Here you are closest
to embodying the Tao
Trust in timely reunification

At the root of each of us
Lies the one
