I Ching
by Martin Burke

Return (The Turning Point)

receptive earth and arousing thunder

success and no error
it is good to have a destination

thunder in the earth-
for everything there is a time
of opening and closing


there is no need for remorse

return, and good fortune

yet repeat this and there is danger

walk with others
yet come back alone

he is noble-hearted
there will be no remorse

misfortune within, misfortune without
if this is also true for the army
then there will be disaster
nothing will move for ten years
