Harmony - Poem by Geetima Baruah Sarma

On a Sunday evening,
Swinging on a swing,
I remembered a saying -
'Work while you work,
Play while you play.'

I pondered awhile,
Exploring significance.
Does it mean concentration
Or detachment
Or perhaps,
A harmony between the two.

Though different, yet inseparable,
One cannot sustain without the other,
Just like
Energy and matter,
Metaphysical and mundane,
Soul and body.

    Agreed, this is inseparable specially if one
    loves the work he/she's doing, it's like work
    that feels like play. Beautiful verse. (Report) Reply
