This is such a beautiful poem. And, I love this sentiment — we actually need the destruction in order to have creation and also stillness. In yoga, this is thought of as rajas (fire, heat), tamas (heaviness or inertia) and satva (purity, clarity). You need them all to balance each other out. It’s not possible to stay in one state all the time.
