I Ching
by Martin Burke


arousing thunder and receptive earth

yes, install helpers
set armies marching

thunder from the east-
kings made music to honour merit
and offered it to the Supreme Deity


enthusiasm, unbridled,
brings misfortune

firm as the rock

looking up it creates remorse
and as it hesitates it brings remorse also

the source and achievement
friends gather
the way the comb gathers the hair

ill, but lives

deluded -but, with change
there is no blame
