I Ching
by Martin Burke

Opposition

clinging flame and joyous lake

small opposition but good fortune

even in friendship
the superior man remains who he is

                             *

the horse who has bolted will return
guard against mistakes

you will meet your lord in a narrow lane
no blame

not a good beginning -no,
but a good end

a meeting with a like-minded man
danger, but no blame

no remorse in companionship

unwholesome sights
but good fortune will come, eventually
