I Ching
by Martin Burke

Pushing Upward

the receptive earth and gentle wind

see the superior man
have no fear

he adds, grain by grain
sand to the great mountain


actions meet with confidence
good fortune

if one is sincere, even with small offerings,
there is no blame

you enter an empty city

the king makes a gift of a mountain
no blame

perseverance brings success
step by step by step

epically in darkness
one must persevere
