isn't it paradoxical?

isn't it paradoxical,

that

the clock's hands have to go on in circles,
for me to move ahead;

i have to smelt ore,
for iron to be robust;

i have to pluck the taut guitar strings
to relieve me of my tautness;

i have to dichotomize something
to identify the beautiful symmetry in it;

i have to imprison air,
for a balloon to soar high with freedom;

i have to bury a seed alive,
for a plant to come to life?

Neato like your blog. Added it to my bookmarks to check for updates.

I have a Bathroom Ceiling Fan Heater site/blog. It pretty much covers Bathroom Ceiling Fan Heater related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time.
