Pendulum

pendulum

 

Pendulum


Back and forth, back and forth

Neither here, neither there

Oscillating life


A wisp of smoke

Night and day, night and day

The perfect cocktail

Sweet vinegar


The joy of life

The life in joy

Boundless energy

Exciting possibilities


The fear in darkness

The darkness in fear

Swallowing dreams, dashing hopes

Joy and sorrow


One here, the other not too far away

Your daily guests


Life is all about balance, they say

Don’t be too happy

Don’t be too sad

Lest you fall

And bruise your knee


You’re a pendulum

One moment sad, one moment joyful

Don’t feel too deeply

Never stay too long

Oscillate

 


I’ve been dealing with horrible insomnia. So this poem came to me in the middle of the night.
I hope you enjoyed it!

Hey, my name is Alheri and I'm obsessed with Jesus. This blog is me keeping my promise to Him for answering a prayer. Purple is my favorite color and my favorite scripture is Jeremiah 32:27 which says "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?" (KJV) You can contact me at msalheri@gmail.com

    Nature is wonderful. Two sides to so many things. Take the homosapiens. Two hands. Two legs. Two eyes. Two lips. Two sets of dentition. Very similar.Take the environment. Two parts of one full day- daytime and nighttime. Land and waters. Very different. Can any one of the above be happy without the other? Maybe. Maybe not.. Insomnia? No. Call it night vigil. God is talking to you. Listen carefully. Because you sound and write so philosophical when you loose your sleep. Could be God wants to reveal Himself to you. The poem you have created is world class. It can be part of a collection ripe for well-advertized launching. Anywhere. Your inspired write-up covers alot. The pendulum swings without food. As soon as it goes into motion, it can only be stopped by external forces. It does not require additional energy to perform its work. We learn so many things from the behavior and characteristics of the pendulum. No cheating. No favoritism. No malice. No bribery. No corruption(fantastically or fundamentally). No padding! No colour code. No North. No South South. No South East. No South West. No freeborn. No Caste. No Jews. No Gentiles. No Hausa. No Yoruba. No Ibo. No Efik. The pendulum has only one language in its own world. Just. Just being just.How I wish we learn from the joyous world of the pendulum! This title – Pendulum – is obviously borne out of an inspiration. One, carry go!

      • Let the Redeemed of the Lord say so. This is one of my favorite verses. It came to mind, so I am sharing it. It is a good thing to know the LORD, and to walk in His Ways. I am His child, and I walk by faith. I went back to see the pendulum again. Yes, I think it is really neat.
