HARMONY

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.
