What is light without darkness and vice- versa ?

darkness without light gasps to hold ,
unseen gossamer threads of art,
beginning to end, they fall & start,
light without darkness dispels cold,

a breath is that i can behold,
rebirth of sorts, contrast darkness,
day after new moon’s emptiness,
homecoming luminescent bright,
faint shimmering stream of light turns,
ignorance of semidarkness.

Poetry form :- Decima (It is a poetry form of 10 lines, with 8 syllables in each line. Rhyme scheme that is to be followed is abba/accddc )

Thoughts :- Light and darkness compliment each other. Both are necessary to complement and their value in life to be acknowledged.
