I Ching
by Martin Burke

Coming to Meet

creative heaven and gentle wind

she is powerful
you should not marry

this is the way the prince acts
he makes his proclamations to all corners

                             *

stop -yet persevere
learn from example and misfortune

this is no blame
but do not entertain guests

be aware of the dangers
and no great mistake will be made

there is no blame-
even so, misfortune

matters are hidden
gifts from heaven

humiliation but no blame
