Inspired by 3 Nephi 7:7-8
Sometimes
our world whirs together
like smooth coin spun on end,
like perfectly balanced
silver globe—

temporary illusion that quickly loses
energy through friction. Gravity
pulls us lopsided into wobbly
roll. We clatter ever lower,
rattle ever faster,
spiral full force
into sudden
stop.

It always ends like that.
The few who listen to warnings
and recognize familiar rhythms
can’t forever turn the throng
by force of will.

But some whirl free, scatter
from danger. Remnants
still gather to orbit
new eternal rounds.
Of all their revolutions,
I cannot tell a hundredth part.









Inspired by the Come, Follow Me readings for September 7-13
